WINNER of the Comedy Women in Print Prize 2020
for unpublished comedy novel:


One middle aged housewife. One Russian arms dealer. One deadly mission.

Vicky Turnbull, a middle-aged housewife, is recalled to her secret life as a spy, working for the Joint Operations Intelligence Services. But chasing illegal arms traders and parenting three children proves to be a tricky combination. Juggling covert operations with baking cakes for the PTA Christmas fair, Vicky wonders if she’s capable of doing both and asks herself if it really is possible to ‘have it all’. And, as the stakes get higher, does she still have what it takes to get the job done?
