I was born in East Sussex in 1977 and grew up in a Vicarage as part of a large, spirited family including my late father, who was a very eccentric vicar (Rev John Lambourne). I now live by the sea in Jersey with my husband, two children - Ruby and Iris - and two cats. I studied English at Warwick University many years ago, later training as a lawyer, and completed a creative writing course with The Writer's Bureau. 

I loved writing Christmas at the Vicarage and Home for Winter, and I'm so excited about the recent release of my third book, Christmas on the Coast - my first novel set in Jersey, partly during the Nazi occupation. I'm currently working on books four and five, so watch this space... 

Aside from writing, my favourite things to do are walking on the cliffs, mucking about in the sea with my family and, come December, getting festive and cosy!
