I am a writer and former documentary producer. THE MAN WHO DIDN'T CALL (UK title) / GHOSTED (US title) is my first novel written in my own name; under the pseudonym Lucy Robinson I have written four other books.

You'll find many echoes of my own life in GHOSTED / THE MAN WHO DIDN'T CALL. There's the secluded network of valleys surrounding Stroud, Gloucestershire, where I grew up;  the heave and groan of the cities in which I've lived and worked, and of course the miserable experience of meeting someone with whom I thought I had a transcendental alchemy . . . only to spend the next two weeks staring at my (silent) phone. We've all been there.

Luckily, I met a man who did call. I live with him in Bristol, UK, with our son. In the rare moments when I’m not being a mother or a writer I play violin in an orchestra, I’m learning to run again, I grow vegetables and I help out at Mothership Writers.
