Her latest saga, The Girl with the Scarlet Ribbon (Headline, May 2020)tells the story of Ada Davidson who finds a baby girl abandoned with nothing but a scarlet ribbon tied to her basket. Ada names her Jess and brings her up as her own, giving Jess no reason to question where she came from. But when Ada dies, Jess is banished from the place she's always called home. With the scarlet ribbon the only connection to her past, will Jess ever find out where she really belongs?

She is also a fan of Coronation Street, running two fan websites and publishing a number of books based on the show.
