She spent many years working in magazines in London, before being awarded an Arts Council England Literature grant for the completion of her first book. She moved to New York when she signed with the literary agency Janklow & Nesbit Associates. No Way Home: A Memoir of Life on the Run, about her childhood growing up as the daughter of a federal fugitive, was later published by St. Martin’s Press, with The Washington Post calling it “a luminous memoir that no one who reads will soon forget.”

She was the Deputy Editor for literary journal, The Wrong Quarterly, and taught creative writing and journalism at Manhattanville College in New York.
