'Did she really just say that? I am fifteen again, except the reality is I am experiencing full parental horror, aged twenty-five. I want to die.'
When the recession hits, it's not just the economy that takes a tumble. Arielle finds herself living back with her parents, on bad terms with Piers, and she has a CV that is as welcome as a pair of knock-off Jimmy Choos. And, maybe it's the location, but she's also finding unwelcome thoughts of her childhood sweetheart are popping into her head...
What's a girl to do? Can Arielle figure out what she now wants to do with her life and move on, or will she be doomed to spend the rest of her life dwelling on her worst mistakes, stuck listening to her parents' embarrassing dinner table talk each night?
"Arielle's inner dialogue was really funny, right up there with Bridget Jones."

My second novel Geli Voyante's Hot or Not was released in October 2013. You can purchase it in Kindle and paperback formats on your local Amazon website.

"I think I will always be known as the Hot or Not girl, defined by it for the rest of my career. Even my tombstone will read: Angelica “Geli” Voyante, beloved trendsetter. Death? Not Hot.
Yet, it doesn’t sound right. Why won’t anyone realise that there is more to me than this fickle persona I have inadvertently become?"
Geli Voyante is bored of being the Hot or Not girl, even if it has the perk of sitting next to Theo, the newspaper's very Hot political columnist. She's also getting a little lonely being single.
When her arch-nemesis Tiggy Boodles gets engaged, and other loved ones start to settle down, it's time for Geli to convince Theo that she’s not as shallow as her column suggests and, more importantly, she’s the one for him. Geli should remember though that there are always two sides to every story, and that applies to people too...
"If you love chick lit and hot guys (I swear Elle creates amazing hot guys) then I'd recommend this book. It's fun and well written and will have you dying to turn another page to find out Theo's secrets."
"What a book. Wow. I loved it. I got sucked into Geli's world and I didn't ever want to leave."
"Between the characters who will have your emotions all over the place and the racy scenes that pop up, this really does make for a read that will consume you."
