After doing an MA in Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, I published two novels with Headline Review called The Water’s Edge and The Haven Home for Delinquent Girls. Then I did a PhD at Reading University, travelled round the world, became a Creative Writing lecturer, and started a family, while publishing mainly poetry and nonfiction. While I was on maternity leave, I wrote a book about breaking down your goals into manageable steps, called the Small Steps Guide.
In 2017, I left my full-time job to focus on my writing and a year later I published my first short story collection, Unusual Places, which I wrote ‘live’ in quirky venues, mainly in London. I am currently working on a series of crime novels.
I now teach part-time for the University of Brighton and the Open University, with occasional freelance work for New Writing South, Creative Future and Jericho Writers. I run my own online courses and have self-published several teaching and writing guides and live in West Hove.
