She graduated from Warwick University and later on moved to London where she worked as a copywriter with an advertising agency. She admits that her writing was not something she had planned and only occurred by chance.

But watching a lot of telly and gorging on biscuits, not getting dressed until lunchtime and waiting for pregnancy to strike are not the signs of someone living an active and fulfilled life. So Polly does something rash. She allows her home to be used as a location for a TV advert. Having a glamorous film crew around will certainly put a bomb under the idyllic, rural life.
Only perhaps she should have consulted Nick first. This time she really has gone too far. When Ella married the handsome, celebrated artist Sebastian Montclair at just nineteen she was madly in love. Now, those blissful years of marriage have turned into the very definition of an unconventional set-up.
With an ex-husband living under her nose and a home crowded by hostile teenaged children, gender-confused chickens — not to mention her hyper critical mother whose own marriage slips spectacularly off the rails -Ella finds comfort in the company of the very charming gardener, Ludo.
Then out of the blue Sebastian decides to move on, catching Ella horribly unawares. How much longer can she hide from what really destroyed her marriage. Happily married with an accomplished teenage daughter, she loves her privileged English country lifestyle. But when a mysterious letter exposes a crushing family secret, her Oxfordshire life falls to pieces.
Forced to confront the truth, a wave of gossip slams right into her picture-perfect household. Can Evie lean into the scandal or will her refusal to change rip her family apart?
The Secret Life of Evie Hamilton is an engaging story of family challenge.
