I'm a former Guardian journalist - news reporter and political correspondent - who always wanted to write fiction. My latest novel, Anatomy of a Scandal, was an instant international bestseller; a top 5 Sunday Times bestseller; and number 1 in the Kindle charts. Translated into 22 languages, it has also been published in the UK, US, Canada, Australia, NZ and South Africa, while the TV rights have been bought by a US producer and writer with a view to it becoming a 7-10 episode series. Before this I wrote two women's fiction novels. My fourth novel, Little Disasters, in a similar vein to Anatomy of a Scandal, will be published in February 2020.
