Fay is a bestselling author of commercial fiction. Her debut novel, The Second Chance Tea Shop, was published by Head of Zeus in 2017, and two further novels make up the Little Somerby series, both also published by HoZ. She loves to base her books in the wonderful county of Somerset, and readers will notice many real locations in her stories, alongside brooding heroes, self-possessed heroines and more than a few flavours of the county. A lover of all things Somerset, her aim is to show what a heart-thumpingly passionate county it really is!
Fay’s latest novel, The Weekender, moves slightly further into Somerset and many readers will recognise locations in and around the iconic and spiritually diverse town of Glastonbury. It is the story of what happens when opposites attract but principles collide, and unfolds in both Somerset and Westminster. Her fifth novel, due for release by Boldwood Books later this year, is also based in the same town, and explores the lives of a school teacher and an air ambulance pilot who just happen to live next door to each other.
When she is not writing fiction, Fay is a secondary school English teacher, a wife, a mother of two daughters and the keeper of a large, demanding Weimaraner dog called Bertie. She can often be found on the Strawberry Line, being dragged from pillar to post by either dog or children, and is only now coming to terms with the fact that some of her students, current and former, occasionally read her novels.
