I've always been a writer, but have only taken it seriously in the last decade. Since then, I've participated in writing courses, had short stories published and written a play.

My first novel 'Echo Hall' has been signed by the crowdfunding publisher Unbound. The novel tells the story of three generations of women who experience love, loss and conflict during times of war. If you are intrigued and would like to be part of making this book happen please do pop over to the website and pledge!(https://unbound.co.uk/books/echo-hall)

"Rapture and what comes after" is my first collection of flash fiction, drawn from many of my weekly #fridayflash stories. It was published by Gumbo Press in 2014.
