My short fiction has appeared in Mslexia, The Scotsman and in a collection from The National Galleries of Scotland. I live on the edge of the Fens, near Cambridge. My first novel, The Words in my Hand, was written with the support of a grant from Arts Council England and was shortlisted for the Costa First Novel award, 2016. I am a MacDowell Colony Fellow and worked on my second novel there between November 2017 and January 2018.

I work with artists in the UK and South Africa and my work has been funded under the Artists’ International Development Fund, (Arts Council England and the British Council).

Details of that project, which saw me work with fine artist Richard Penn at Nirox, Johannesburg, can be found here: http://mailout.co/cambridge-based-artists-secure-arts-council-funding-to-develop-international-projects/

I’ve since been commissioned to produce work in support of  Penn’s most recent exhibition, Surface Detail, at the Origins’ Centre.


‘The word for it’ – my short story installed in the exhibition space for Richard Penn’s Surface Detail, 2015.


I am represented by Veronique Baxter, at David Higham Associates.

The Words in My Hand is published by:

Two Roads
Le Livre de Poche (Préludes Editions)
BTC Sahinpasic

I managed the Words and Women twitter feed until March 2016, a voluntary organisation representing women writers in the East of England.
