About me

I am a Senior Lecturer in Creative and Professional Writing at the University of the West of England. In 2016, my debut novel TESTAMENT won the Bath Novel Award, a £2,000 international prize for best unpublished novel. TESTAMENT was acquired by riverrun/Quercus in 2017, and will be published in July 2018 as riverrun's lead title.

I am represented by Conville and Walsh. My fiction and essays have appeared in numerous journals, including Mslexia, Going Down Swinging, Lighthouse Journal, and Belleville Park Pages. 

I have taught literature and creative writing for five years at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, first at the University of East Anglia, and then at the University of Sussex, before coming to the University of the West of England in 2016.
