About Me

I was born in Somerset, where I lived with my extended family before falling in love at first sight with my dream guy on a blind date. We moved to the glorious Gloucestershire countryside after our marriage, and live there with our children, pets and assorted livestock.

I write non-fiction books, magazine articles for national magazines, and contemporary fiction starring complex men and independent women. Harlequin published my historical novels under the pen name Polly Forrester, before my first book for them as Christina Hollis, The Italian Billionaire’s Virgin, was published in 2007. Since then I’ve written eighteen contemporary novels, sold nearly three million books, and my work has been translated into twenty different languages.

In 2018 I enrolled at the University of Gloucestershire as a mature student, and achieved an MA (Distinction) in Creative and Critical Writing.

When I’m not writing I’m gardening, cooking, walking my dog (the famous Alex!).
