I Know A Woman, is published by Aurum on February 15. It’s all about the links between some of the most fascinating women of the last couple of hundred years; friendships, mentoring, influences and groups that served to inspire and strengthen their resolve.
There are mini biographies of 84 women; some you’ll know such as Amelia Earhart, Beyoncé and Katharine Hepburn, but others are more esoteric. I loved uncovering the stories of artist Claude Cahun, aviatrix Marie Marvingt, and maths genius Sofia Kovalevskaya.
The book is made by the incredible illustrations of Sarah Papworth; they’re vibrant, compelling and tell each woman’s story to great effect. The book is available in all good bookshops and online, and I can’t wait for you to see it in real life – it’s a beautiful thing.
Rural London was published in May 2017 by Michael O’Mara. They say:
“London is a wonderful city, but sometimes the hustle and bustle, noise and grime, can get too much and you feel the need for some peace and quiet, clean air and nature. But there’s no need to flee to the countryside, as London has so many surprisingly ‘rural’ areas and activities to offer.
With everything from beautiful gardens and country walks, to cosy pubs and nature reserves, Rural London will help you to discover a very unexpected side of the capital city. Discover the best farmers markets, watch some Morris dancing and visit a country show. Take a stroll around London’s villages, go bird-spotting and take some time out in a beautiful park.”

My second book, London in an Hour, was published by Virgin in May 2016. It features 120 bite-size ideas for things to do and places to visit in London in under an hour. Buy it from Amazon here.
My first ‘proper’ book, Little London, was published by Virgin in April 2014. You can buy it on Amazon, or via Hive, or at any good bookstore. It’s also stocked in most big London galleries and museums.
