My first novel, Starlings, was published in 2011. I am a short story writer and co-founder of the literary group, Rattle Tales. I am interested in storytelling and my work has been read at Word Theatre, Latitude, Liar's League, Grit Lit and Rattle Tales. My stories have been shortlisted for The Bristol Prize and The Arvon Award. I am currently working on a short story collection about fame.
