About this author

I'm the author of 'We That are Left', set in Cornwall, Anglesey and France during the First World War. It was finished with a Literature Wales Writer's Bursary in 2013 and published by Honno Press in February 2014. 'We That are Left' is the Welsh Books Council's Book of the Month for March, and the Welsh Book of the Month for Waterstones Wales and the National Museums of Wales.

George Eliot
“But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.”
George Eliot, Middlemarch
