Dorset

I am a Dorset-based writer of poetry and fiction. 'Paisley Shirt' my short-fiction collection which was longlisted in the best short story category of the Saboteur Awards 2018. 'The String Games', a novel and 'adversaries/comrades' a poetry pamphlet are my other published works. My writing has been performed at fringe festivals in the South West. I co-write short plays and comedy sketches that have been staged in Bridport and Brighton.

As Chair of the Dorset Writers Network, I work with the steering group to connect creative communities and celebrate the creativity in the county. I am a visiting tutor to undergraduates of creative writing at Arts University Bournemouth.
