AN Oxford author inspired by growing up amidst the city's dreaming spires is celebrating the launch of her third successive novel.

Summertown writer Zoe May landed a dream book deal last year with her debut novel Perfect Match, about struggling to find love in the 21st century.

Now the 31-year old will see her third book, a romantic comedy about a struggling photographer at a New York dating agency, published by HarperCollins today.

Speaking of the release of 'When Polly Met Olly' she said having a third novel released was 'a dream come true'.

The novel is available on Amazon, iTunes and Kobo from today and will see a paperback released in March.
