I am the author of No One Has Any Intention of Building A Wall (a short story collection) and Hassan's Zoo & A VIllage in Winter (a short story pamphlet), both published in 2021 by Fly on the Wall Press.
My stories have been nominated for international prizes including the Pushcart Prize 2016 and the Best Small Fictions Award 2019. They have been long- and short-listed and highly commended in competitions including the Bridport Prize, Bath Flash Fiction Award and MsLexia, and won the Eyelands Book Award 2019 for an Unpublished Short Story Collection.
In 2017 I won the Kingston University MFA Creative Writing Prize. My novel Riding a Light Beam was shortlisted in the Retreat West Novel Competition 2018.
My short stories both, literary and commercial, have been published widely in magazines and anthologies including The Bridport Prize Anthology 2018, Into the Void, the Aesthetica Creative Writing Annual 2017, Litro, Neon, Brittle Star, and Bristol Short Story Prize 4. They have been performed by Liars' League and read at literary festivals. My commercial short stories have appeared in Ireland's Own, Yours and Candis.
My poetry has been published in the Irish Literary Review and Bunbury Magazine, and a short play performed at Theatre503.
I was formerly Writer in Residence at Surrey Wildlife Trust and Writer in Residence at the National Trust's house Polesden Lacey.
