Shop Girl Diaries
Shop Girl Diaries began in June 2008 as a blog about working in my Mum's chaotic chandelier shop. The stories on retail comedy and eccentric customers entertained the directors at Salt Publishing enough for them to commission a book. Later Chloe Thomas directed a short film which is still being edited. My blog also won the CompletelyNovel Author Blog Awards in 2010, voted by readers. Since the part-closure of my Mum's bizarre little shop my blog has moved from shop comedy to the wider comedy of life. I write about issues that move me, the writing process and my progress with my current novel. My blogs veer on the humorous side and I like to high light the absurd. I write my blog weekly and can be followed on Facebook and Twitter.
