I write mostly literary fiction, though I have a soft spot for old-fashioned ghost stories. My short fiction has 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 run monthly writing retreats in Cheltenham for Writer’s HQ, undertake paid critique work, and occasionally read for competitions.
I am currently seeking representation for my second novel, a Gothic-tinged literary fiction story of queer love and addiction, set on an island in the North Sea.
Before I was a writer I worked a number of jobs, including stonemasonry, archaeology, waitressing, gardening and growing genetically modified tobacco plants for scientific research, all of which have been great for material. I live in Cheltenham, in the UK, with my husband and daughters.
