When my lovely editor at Canelo asked if I had based the villa in Sunrise on the Coast on anything in particular, I couldn't wait to dig out the photos of this little beauty. It's in a wonderful location and I've tried to stay as true to the reality of the place as I could (with a little bit of poetic license with the banana fields). Every time I pass it, I have a War of the Roses moment (the film with Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner not the actual conflict in fifteenth c
Blurb April Statham had it all – until her husband left her for a blonde ten years her junior. Now she’s thirty-five, single, and starting again. So she does what anyone in her position would do: she impulsively invests her life savings in the chalet park she used to visit as a child, on the beautiful Cornish Coast.

It's publication day for Sunrise on the Coast and I'm so excited I could cry. In fact I probably will, because it doesn't take much to set me off, and I loved writing this book so much.

Blurb Tess Tyler needs a break. Weighed down by her high-pressure job and her demanding father, she’s left little time to take care of herself. But after a shocking discovery sends her spiralling, she flees to Wynmouth, the seaside town she fell in love with as a child, to escape it all. With its sandy beaches, stunning rock pools and welcoming community, Tess feels like she can finally breathe again. And as she grows ever closer to local barman Sam, she dares to dream that s
