An English and creative writing teacher for 41 years, Gill found that her hankering to write never went away and took a Masters in Creative Writing which launched her second career as a writer. Her debut novel THE OCEANS BETWEEN US was listed for the Mslexia novel award, and her second, THE CHILD ON PLATFORM ONE, became a USA Today best seller. Gill lives with her family in West Sussex where she divides her time between writing her fourth novel and running a successful creative writing blog.
