Welcome to my website!

I’m Isabella May and I write Foodie Romance Journeys – stories full of comedy, magic, and travel… and of course, the most delectable eats! These make for a unique and exciting style of storytelling; the kind of books that are impossible to forget…

My FREE novelette is not only delicious, but the prequel to The Cocktail Bar…

I live in (mostly) sunny Andalusia, Spain with my husband, daughter and son, creatively inspired by the mountains and the sea. Having grown up on Glastonbury’s ley lines however, I am unable to completely shake off my spiritual inner child, and I am a Law of Attraction fanatic, as well as a Pranic Healer.

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 cross-genre novels, fused with a dollop of romcom, and a sprinkle of magical realism.
