She was named after two great women, Virginia Wade and Virginia Woolf, in the hope, she would be a writer and a tennis star. She never did become a tennis player but her dream of becoming a writer has come true – What Milo Saw, her first novel, was published to rave reviews. The Astonishing Return of Norah Wells is her second novel.
