As a journalist, Tilly contributed regularly to the Sunday Times, Daily Mail  and Evening Standard  before following in the footsteps of her sister Louise and turning her hand to novels.


Tilly's first book, Adored, was a smash hit on both sides of the Atlantic and she hasn't looked back since. She is married and has two young sons as well as Tilly's daughter Sefi, who is now 18.
