Beth studied English at university before going into children's publishing. She lives as close to the countryside as she can get while still being in reach of London, and wrote her first novel, The Flatshare, on her train journey to and from work. She is now writing novels full time, and if she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea, and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
The Flatshare starts out as a sweet, funny, beautifully written romance with great dialogue and characters you'd love to share a flat with...and then, once you're hooked, it deepens and becomes so much more. It's a cheering, lovely look at friendship and love and learning to trust after heartbreak. I never wanted it to end -- Maddie Dawson * author of Matchmaking for Beginners and The Survivor's Guide to Family Happiness * Tiffy and Leon will stay in your head long after you turn the final page. This is a gorgeously written, highly original love story that will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the questionable joys of shared living. I absolutely loved it. -- Phoebe Morgan * the number one bestselling author of The Doll House * This will be THE heart-warming summer read of 2019... I couldn't stop thinking about the characters in between reading it, and it made me smile throughout. -- Laura Jane Williams * author of Ice Cream for Breakfast * I finished The Flatshare in one sitting - it is, as promised, incredibly uplifting and joyous. I spent the last few hours with a massive smile on my face. I have fallen head over heels in love with Tiffy and Leon, and indeed with this book -- Louise O'Neill Whip-smart and joyful, an original, delightful and thoroughly engaging love story -- Rowan Coleman Deliciously funny and truly uplifting, this is a heartwarming story of friendship, love and starting over.
