My third novel, Salvage, is to be published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson in 2019.

Salvage is told in four parts – spring, summer, autumn and winter – over the course of one year, and is the story of a 72-year-old woman, Stella, who has built up a company with her husband that is now one of the country’s premier specialists in architectural salvage. At the start of the novel, Stella makes a radical decision that will totally overturn her past, sending shockwaves through her family and forcing them to reassess everything they had believed to be true.

I’m really looking forward to scrabbling through architectural salvage yards (long a source of fascination for me) for research, and then, as always, getting under the skin of my characters – their past, their present and their future.
