Welcome to my website.
I am a 28-year-old writer, born in the UK and living in Turin, Italy. My first novel, following 95 years on a tiny island in the Mediterranean, is The House at the Edge of Night. It was a Kirkus Reviews and NPR best book of 2016, and was listed as one of New York Magazine's 'Best 100 Beach Reads Ever'.
My work is published by Penguin Random House and translated into 22 languages. Previously, I wrote a series of young adult books called The Last Descendants. I have also written essays and articles on topics such as Italy, the 2008 financial crisis, and my experiences as a young writer.
With an interest in human rights, I am a member of PEN Writers' Circle. I am also writing consultant to VOICE, a not-for-profit project which aims to provide a platform for humanitarian workers around the world to tell their own stories, in their own words.
When not writing, you can find me on Facebook (where I post updates and news about my books), on Instagram (where I am currently using photographs to document a year in the life of a writer), and on my blog (updated with news, events and occasional essays most Mondays).
