I have been writing for as long as I can remember.

I studied Drama & English at UEA in Norwich.

After graduating, I spent some years working as a playwright (and a waitress… and a bookseller… and a BBC Drama Script Editor).

You can read about my playwriting if you go to the ‘writing’ section of this website.

I studied the MA in Creative Writing at Kingston University and I am currently carrying out doctoral research in Creative & Critical Writing at the University of Sussex where I am also a Royal Literary Fund Fellow.

What else can I tell you? I was born in Canada.


Er, I grew up in Teddington…

I live in Brighton.


Umm, here are some pictures of what I can see if I look up from my computer screen.
