My third novel, HUNGARIAN DANCES, was published in spring 2008 by Hodder & Stoughton, who also brought out my first two novels, RITES OF SPRING and ALICIA'S GIFT, in 2006 and 2007 respectively. I'm now working on my fourth novel, also under contract to Hodder. HUNGARIAN DANCES is soon to be translated into Dutch, Hungarian and Romanian.
As a music journalist I write for The Independent, BBC Music Magazine and others, and I've published two composer biographies - Erich Korngold and Gabriel Faure (Phaidon Press). My first play, A WALK THROUGH THE END OF TIME, was premiered in French at the Consonances Festival, St Nazaire, in September 2007 and will have its English world premiere at the Lake District Summer Music Festival in August 2008.
I live in London with my husband, a violinist, and a fierce ginger cat, Solti, who has views on everything.
