I live in London with my husband, three children a dog, and a goldfish.
Although I was brought up in England by my English mother, my father was from Sudan. I lived there until I was three and began to revisit my Sudanese family regularly in my twenties.
I read modern languages at Cambridge University and I’ve worked in Lebanon, Germany, Italy and America and made lots of documentaries for television.
