After taking an honours degree in English from Brown University, she moved to the United Kingdom, where she spent three years researching fairies in Victorian children's literature. As this had very few practical applications, she became a secondary school English teacher, writing novels in the evenings and in the school holidays. She currrently writes full time and lives in Berkshire with her husband, son and about a million guitars.
