Welcome to my website

Welcome to my website.  I’m a novelist, dramatist and prize-winning short story writer.  My novel Sisterwives is published by Crocus Books and also available on Kindle.  My debut radio drama The Cloistered Soul was broadcast by BBC Radio 4  as part of the ‘Original British Dramatists’ series.  You can read my prize-winning short story (winner of the Linen Press Shorts competition) here.  I was the winner of the international Storgy short story competition and my short story ‘How to Curate a Life’ was published in the anthology EXIT EARTH by Storgy Books.

On this site you can find out more about me and the books I’ve written.  I’m the Course Director of  Creative Writing at Leeds Beckett University.  I also work freelance as a workshop facilitator, editor and mentor (I worked for three years for the leading consultancy Cornerstones).  I’m contactable here via Twitter.

These days, I am increasingly interested in embodiment, movement and dance and how they can be integrated into the writing process.  My blog contains random musings on creativity, my writing life, Sisterwives and other things I’m working on just now.  I also publish regular posts in the Literary Sisters series, which showcases the work of a broad range of contemporary women writers.
