About

I am an avid writer, reader, and drinker of tea. I come from South Wales, and am currently an undergraduate of Physics at Exeter University.

When I was fifteen, I penned my YA romance novel The Kissing Booth, and began uploading it to story-sharing platform Wattpad, where it accumulated over 19 million reads.

I was picked up by Random House UK at the age of seventeen, and offered a three-book deal, whilst completing my A Levels in French, Spanish, Maths and Physics.20131231-183441.jpg

I’ve been dubbed a “Wattpad sensation,” “The Dickens of the iPad Generation”, and have been listed as one of Time Magazine’s Top 16 Most Influential Teenagers 2013, as well as being number six on The Times ‘Top 25 Under 20’ in summer 2014. (Which, when you think about it, is pretty damn crazy, right?)

So far, my published books are:

I’m currently represented by Clare Wallace at the Darley Anderson Literary Agency.

I have been shortlisted for several awards:

  • Queen of Teen Awards 2014
  • Romantic (YA) Novel of the Year 2014
  • ​The Women of the Future Young Star Award 2013

In 2013 I was awarded the Scout’s Birthday Honours badge for writing.

In July 2014 I had the brilliant opportunity to speak on a panel at the first ever UK YA Lit Con (YALC) as part of London Film and Comic Con. I was on the ‘I’m Too Sexy For This Book’ panel, with James Dawson, Cat Clarke, and Non Pratt, talking about sex in Young Adult fiction. I also spoke at the TEDxTeen ‘Remarkable Disruptors’ conference and the Wired Next Generation event in October 2014.
