Welcome to My Website!

I’m Isabella May and I write Foodie Romance Journeys – stories full of fabulous food, HEAs with swoonworthy characters, and travel to some of the most beautiful places on Earth.

I live in (mostly) sunny Andalusia, Spain with my husband, daughter and son, creatively inspired by the mountains and the sea. I grew up in Somerset on Glastonbury’s ley lines and love to feature my quirky English hometown in my stories.

After a degree in Modern Languages and European Studies at UWE, Bristol (and a year working abroad in Bordeaux and Stuttgart), I bagged an extremely jammy and fascinating job in children’s publishing… selling foreign rights for novelty, board, pop-up and non-fiction books all over the world; in every language from Icelandic to Korean, Bahasa Indonesian to Papiamento!

All of which has fuelled my curiosity and love of international food and travel – both feature extensively in my rom-coms.

I am a Pranic Healer and a stillbirth mum.
