About me

I have over 15 years of professional and creative writing experience gained at leading UK publishers and charities. 

My debut novel Entanglement was long-listed for the Bath Novel Award in 2016 and was published in March 2018 by The Borough Press (Harper Collins) and in Germany and Italy in 2019. My short stories have been published in the Evening Standard, the Sunday Express and in a collection by The Borough Press: Underground, tales for London. 

I have written for 3AM Magazine and have contributed to a number of books on health and architecture. My flash fiction was long-listed for the Oxford Flash Prize 2022 and will be published in 2023.
