I was Highly Commended in the Bridport Prize for Flash Fiction in 2012 and Shortlisted in 2016.
I write poetry, am working on a first novel (working title, The Divine And Sexual History of April Golding and Timothy Finch) and mentor aspiring writers.
I graduated this summer, with an MA in Creative Writing & Publishing, from West Dean College, West Sussex.

Based for the last decade in Stourbridge, I’m about to relocate to Glasgow.
