Early work[edit]

Born and raised in Leicester, Page began writing her first novel in 1987.[1] She began writing the novel during her lunch hours while working as a secretary for Land Rover Parts in Desford.[2] Annie, her first book, was sent by a friend to literary agent Darley Anderson, who helped her sign a contract with her current publishers, Headline. Her debut novel, Evie, was released in 1992, followed by Annie. Her following two books had the main character as the title; later her titles were popular sayings.[citation needed]

Style[edit]

Page's novels are predominantly set in Leicester and are renowned for their strong plots and characters. Her books are rich in Leicestershire dialogue and feature gritty plots with page-turning twists, often involving a sense of intrigue or crime.[citation needed] Initially, her books were set at the turn of the 20th century (At the toss of a sixpence) to the 1970s (Josie). During the 2000s, she found a niche writing saga's set in the 1950s and 60's.[citation needed]
