Hello and welcome to my website…

Here you can find out about me, what I’m up to, how to contact me, some examples of my work and my CV.


I’m a poet, playwright, fiction writer & performer and teach writing in the community, prisons, university and adult education.

Cloaks, my new play, premiered at Buxton Fringe Festival in July 2016 and was wonderfully received with great audiences, great reviews – including a 4 star review from FringeGuru  – and two nominations in The Buxton Fringe Awards both for best production and best new writing.

Our next performance of Cloaks will be at Rothley Community Library at 7pm on June 30th 2017.

Cloaks has appeared at the following venues recently:

My chapbook April’s Fish was published by Koo Press and my short fiction has been published including by Virago and has featured on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Wales (short story and Poetry Please). In 2012 I was a finalist in the Novelicious novel competition.
