Author has written 17 stories for MI-5/Spooks.

I'm a huge fan of Spooks even though I live on the other side of the pond. I would love to move back to Jolly Old England; I lived there, in a castle no less, for six months in college, but my husband absolutely refuses to up and move. I compensate for this by watching British TV - Spooks, Downton Abbey, Doc Martin, The IT Crowd, Cold Feet, Life on Mars, Touching Evil, Kingdom, Being Human, The Vicar of Dibley, Merlin, Hu$tle, and Ashes to Ashes. I just started watching William and Mary on PBS and am looking forward to seeing more. I blame PBS for my addiction as they are the ones that started airing Spooks all those years ago.

From this side of the pond, I watch Castle, Bones (yes I know it's gotten a bit silly and convoluted, but I find that I can't give it up) and Scandal - there's just something about juicy dramas set in DC that I can't resist.
