Faye worked at The Agency representing film and TV screenwriters before becoming a children’s author. She always had drawers full of notebooks filled with ideas but it was when she left The Agency and went on the Faber Academy’s Writing for Children course that she started to take her writing seriously.
A conversation with her son gave her the idea that would become My Second Life, her debut novel, which was published in the UK by Usborne and in the US & Canada by Farrar Straus Giroux. Faye’s second title, What I Couldn’t Tell You (Usborne), was published the following year.
Usborne published Faye’s third and most recent title in 2019, My Secret Lies With You.
In 2020, while working on other ideas, Faye has written a short story called The Door, which she’s made available for free on her website.
