About

Based in the Stockport/Manchester area.

In 2011 I completed an MA in Creative Writing at Manchester University under the tuition of MJ Hyland and Martin Amis. Since then I have received a highly commended in the 2011 Commonwealth Short Story Competition and been shortlisted for the 2011-2012 Fish Short Story Prize. My first novel Getting Away With It won the Yeovil Prize in 2012.

In 2013 Getting Away With It won second prize at the Luke Bitmead Bursary.  My short story A Really Nice Day was published in The Bath Short Story Award 2013 Anthology. My second novel The Bearded Ladybird was long listed for the Exeter Novel Prize in 2013 and won the Impress Prize in 2013. It will be published by Impress Books in 2014.
