I've loved reading ever since I was tiny and discovered Enid Blyton in a corner of my classroom - The Magic Faraway Tree, anyone? I later went on to develop a trilogy to rival Tolkien, based on The Hobbit (er, only it wasn't quite as good!).

As a grown up, my dream is to see my book in a book shop or to read a good review that some kind soul has left online for others to read. I live in the south of France with my small daughter and would, one day, like to be able to master the French subjunctive.

I'm author of new YA novel The Sham, a keen outdoor swimmer (whatever the weather), an avid reader and I also like to collect quotes, articles, tips etc. on how to write, submit & publish really good fiction.

I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thanks Ellen. I do have to agree that the first chapter was a little squeamish, but it was told in an effort to show just what bullies these girls were. However, to me the story went away from the girls and concentrated...

I received a review copy of this book for my stop on the blog tour at Donnie Darko Girl. The Sham will pull you in and won't let go until the very end. A tautly written mystery thriller, this novel kept me guessing until I didn't know which way was up and which was down. I wanted to know who Jack re...
