My novels fall in that particular spot between literary and commercial fiction that’s often called reading club fiction, or accessible literary fiction. I am currently working on my third novel, and seeking representation for my second, a Gothic-tinged story of queer love and addiction, set on an island in the North Sea.
My short stories tend more towards the traditional literary, though I have a soft spot for old-fashioned ghost stories. They have won prizes and appeared in a number of literary magazines, anthologies and online platforms (see Publications and Prizes), and my poetry has featured in several noteworthy journals. You can read one of my short stories on this site, here , and others via the links on the Publications and Prizes page.
I also undertake paid critique work and publish blog posts on writing craft via Writer’s HQ.
I’m no longer on any social media, but if you would like to contact me about anything writing-related you can do so via the Contact page. I do check the inbox, and will pick up anything sent to me.
