My projects


Never content with just working on one project, I've started to write a novel too. I have actually had this idea in my head for quite some time, and I began writing shortly after Christmas. The book is still very much in the early stages, but I am very happy with what I have written so far. The character is someone completely unlike myself - in fact he is male and a lot older. But that is all I can say for now. I'll give more details and keep you all informed, when I have written more.


My Carole Lombard project is going slowly but surely. I say slowly because so far I've been unable to interview anyone who is related to or knew Carole in any way (or is related to someone who knew her). I have acquired many items that are rare and unknown so far, but interviews are a very big requirement for my books - as demonstrated in 'Marilyn Monroe: Private and Undisclosed', where I interviewed 100 people.

So if you know anyone out there who is related to, or knew Carole in any way, please get them to email me - I'd love to hear from them.

I have had a huge response and much help from Carole's fans, and I'm so happy and grateful to you all. You will be acknowledged in the book, when it is complete.


My Marilyn book is still selling steadily. There is no news yet about translation rights, but I'll let you all know when I hear anything.

I'm very excited!

I am a huge fan of Sex and the City, especially Sarah Jessica Parker's character, Carrie Bradshaw. For the first few weeks after giving birth, I spent many hours watching Sex and the City on DVD, while Daisy slept beside me. It helped keep me sane in those difficult first weeks of being a mum! Of course as a writer I was always inspired by Carrie's job as a columnist, and now it seems very strange (but also very cool!) that I too am now a columnist!

I'm really excited about the Sex and the City film, and was thrilled to discover the official website, located at
I am counting down to the film's opening in May, but for now surfing the website will help pass the time!
