Her novel The Mummy Bloggers is the hilarious story of three connected women, Elle, Leisel and Abi, who are all vying for a coveted cash award for their blogs.

Each woman has a very different focus audience and style, but all are successful enough that they are singled out as the best in the ‘Mummy Blogger’ category for the awards.

Anyone with access to social media will get a kick out of this for-our-times novel.
