She reviews and broadcasts regularly for press and radio and lives in Norfolk and London. Her novel, The Colour (2003), set in New Zealand at the time of the West Coast gold rush in the 1860s, was shortlisted for the 2004 Orange Prize for Fiction. Her latest books are a collection of short stories, The Darkness of Wallis Simpson (2005) and the novel, The Road Home (2007). She was awarded a CBE in 2007.
