About me:

I won the Bristol Short Story Prize with the story ‘My Girl’, which was also broadcast on BBC Radio 4. I worked in film before pursuing writing full time. I have an MA in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia and completed my PhD at the Open University, where I teach Creative Writing. My debut novel, The Longest Fight, published by Myriad, was shortlisted for the Cross Sports Book Awards, and listed in The Independent’s Paperbacks of the Year.

The first review of The Longest Fight appeared last week in the Londonist, whose reviewer loved the evocative setting: 'Peckham and Soho in all their smoggy glory'

I appeared on BBC Radio London on 11th February at 1pm to talk about the novel and its journey to publication.
