My first novel, Home, was published by Red Button Publishing and is now available direct from amazon. My first collection of short stories, Glitches, is published by Acorn Books. As well as editing my second novel, I am working on various projects in different media (watch this space), a blog tracking my attempts to read and review a novel a week and a Creative Writing PhD in practice with the Open University having won an Open-Oxford-Cambridge Doctoral Training Partnership studentship. My critical thesis will explore the concept of narrative imperialism and my novel uses alternative narrative structures and features mythical, magical Lamassu statues and Gertrude Bell.
I teach creative writing for City, University of London, teaching part of the wonderful Novel Studio course and running the City Writes events. I worked for the publishing community Byte The Book for several years and enjoy collaborating with The Museum of Walking. With the Museum of Walking, I’ve devised walkshops and judged flash competitions culminating in beautiful chapbooks published by Sampson Low Publishers. I continue to edit the Museum’s chapbook series when I can and you can buy them here. Inspired by these, I’ve created the Creative Writing Walkshop, a Sound Piece designed for listening on the move, and a fictional soundwalk One Circuitous Path. Click here for further details.
