I have been writing most of my life, and have written short stories, novels, and poetry. I wrote a trilogy of fantasy novels when I was in my mid-late teens, and then a few standalones. I still have the manuscripts in a drawer. Since then I’ve worked on several more novels, a smattering of poetry, and I have a thriving daily journaling practice. I am constantly aiming to improve, and have returned to looking for representation in 2021.
Academically, I read for a BA (Hons) in English (1999-2002), including studying poetry with Carol Ann Duffy, and an MA in Creative Writing (2002-2006), both from Manchester Metropolitan University. During my Master’s degree, I studied publishing with Michael Schmidt and novel writing with Andrew Biswell.
I successfully completed National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) in 2004, 2018, 2019, and 2020.
Recently, I have discovered a love of writing book reviews. Given I am an avid reader, this fits me perfectly and I rather enjoy writing them. I publish my reviews on Netgalley, Goodreads, Amazon (UK and US), Waterstones, and occasionally on my blog.
I’m also an Emerging Author member of the Society of Authors.
