I wrote my first ‘book’ when I was eight. It was about two friends who found an island full of dogs and had adventures there. It wasn’t quite the bestseller I planned it to be, but I fell in love with writing.
Since then, my short stories have been published in The Mays Anthology, Bandit Fiction and by Cambridge Creatives, and I won First Place in the Arrol Adams Fiction Prize 2019. I have also written two novels and am now editing both; The Underlings was my first full length novel and is an ongoing labour of love. A Small World was my lockdown project!
When I’m not writing, I can be found with a gin and tonic, discussing feminism or liberation theology, or else driving out of the Fens to find a hill to climb. Going for long walks with the dogs is my favourite way of searching
for literary inspiration, although once I have a story idea I then have to get the cat off my desk so that I can write.
