Not short of ideas or a unique world-view, Natasha brings a highly authentic quirky original voice and humour to her work. Her high-concept series have engaging characters, warmth and humanity. Frequent themes are the meaning of life, making sense of the world, and an undercurrent exploration of mental health.
Having published two Young Adult books alongside a spoof parenting manual, in the past year production companies have picked up two of her original series – and screenwriting is where she is mostly focused, though she also currently writing a moving memoir.
Natasha is known to many as a presenter on BBC6 Music and Xfm and is a huge fan of music.
Her debut Young Adult novel Weirdos vs Quimboids was longlisted for the UKLA Book Award.
Natasha lives in Croydon with her husband Jim, sons Oscar and Wilfie, two geriatric cats and Enid the chocolate Labrador.
