About me

I am a writer and performer based in the north of England.

In 2016 my first poetry pamphlet Echolocation was published by Mother’s Milk Books and my first collection Empires of Clay by Cinnamon Press.

I also write fiction and for theatre. My work has featured in audio trails, libretto, in film, on umbrellas and on the walls of a recording studio, won

prizes and is widely printed in journals and anthologies.

For more than two decades, I have run creative writing workshops and collaborated on interdisciplinary projects involving my writing. I also offer mentoring and accept private and public commissions.

When I’m not writing

I feel an affinity with three hometowns – Bradford, Harrogate and Leeds, where I have lived since coming to university in the 90s. Spells in Australia and Germany as an army child gave me itchy feet. I soothe these and my chronic health issues regularly in the rivers, lakes and seas where I swim.

I campaign regularly on social justice and sustainability issues and am mum to a grown-up son. An overcrowded bedside table testifies to my greed for a range of reading material. Find some of my favourites on my Insta or Recommended Writers page.
