Do you want to know a secret?


I’ve just signed the contract for my third novel!

THE SECRET will be published next summer by Crooked Cat Books.

Set in the same fictional village as The Silence, The Secret is about another secret harboured by Villa Leonida – this time a wartime secret.


The story follows the friendship, love and rivalry between two girls growing up in Mussolini’s Italy.  Their paths diverge when beautiful, aspirational Martina marries into the wealthiest family in the village and moves into Villa Leonida while plain, studious Irena trains to be a teacher. But Martina finds life at Villa Leonida very different from the one she’s dreamed of and an encounter with a stranger leads to a secret that has devastating consequences.
