Read full description of the books The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite:In Berlin, as the clock chimes the turn of the twentieth century, Lilly Nelly Aphrodite takes her first breath. Born to a cabaret performer but orphaned in scandalous circumstances, Lilly is brought up inside the spartan surroundings of St Xavier's orphanage.
Outside, Germany is torn apart by war and starvation, but decadent Berlin tantalises. Together with her only friend Hanne, Lilly reinvents herself and lands in the heart of the glamorous motion picture world. But when Lilly falls for a Russian director, she has no idea that the affair will span decades, cross continents and may ultimately cost her everything.
Darkly seductive, The Luminous Life of Lilly Aphrodite is an epic tale of transformation set amidst both a glittering theatrical world and grinding poverty at the height of the Weimar Republic.
Read information about the authorI'm a novelist/radio dramatist. I've written seven novels (two for children) and numerous plays for BBC Radio 4.
My new novel, To Capture What We Cannot Keep is published in late 2016/early 2017.
The book has its own website: tocapturewhatwecannotkeep.com. Here you can read about ideas behind the novel, look at pics and sign up for the newsletter. I would love to hear from you.
I am inspired by new places and old books, snatches of conversation and boards on Pinterest (seed catalogues from the 19th century!) I am a list-maker, a grower, on a good year, of fruit and vegetables, a walker of old paths and a mother of teenagers.
Writing novels helps me to discover something new - about the world, about history, about myself.
