She is also the author of a legal crime trilogy Alicia Allen Investigates:
'The inspiration for my legal crime trilogy featuring a heroine who is an Anglo-Italian, Pringle-munching, crime-solving London solicitor with a dogged determination and a keen sense of justice grew out of my experience from working within the law, my love of Italy and, of course, Pringles!'
