I graduated from Kings College, London with an English degree and MA in 19th Century Literature. I followed this love of plot to work in feature film production before seeing the light and pursuing writing full-time. I attained a distinction from the UEA Creative Writing MA. Currently tutoring for the Open University in Literature and Creative Writing, and still writing of course.
I am currently working on a PhD with the Open University. I have also started writing more short stories, including another piece about the characters from My Girl.
My novel The Longest Fight has been aquired by Myriad Editions. Due for publication in early 2015.
My short story, 'My Girl', will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4, Friday 29th March at 3.45pm.
I have been shortlisted for the Fish Publishing International Short Memoir Prize, 2013.
Sofa So Good - The short film I script edited has been selected for the BBC Film Network. Congratulations, Robin!
I can be heard on The Write Lines programme, as part of National Short Story Week. Presented by Sue Cook.
It's a great privilege to be awarded first prize in the Bristol Short Story Prize 2011 - A huge thank you to the organisers, the sponsors, the readers, and of course the judges!
