Born in England, I’ve been living in central Italy since 1980. My début novel – LITTLE MONSTERS – was published by Picador in 2008, the same year as a collection of short fiction, entitled THE SCENT OF CINNAMON AND OTHER STORIES (Salt Publishing). Since then I’ve published two novels set in Rome (ANY HUMAN FACE, Picador, and THE VIEW FROM THE TOWER, Exhibit A), a novella (THE SLAVE HOUSE, Kindle Single), and an unreliable memoir (WITH A ZERO AT ITS HEART, The Friday Project). My most recent novel, THE CHILDREN’S HOME, was published by Scribner in the United States and Aardvark Bureau in the UK. Take a look around this site for anything else you’d like to know.
