About me

I’m a writer of short and long fiction, essays and articles. I’m also a writing tutor.

I love to tell stories and have been writing since I was five years old. I write slowly. I make no apology for this. Fiction can be beautiful, political, challenging, disturbing, funny or tragic, but the most important thing is the story. Even when I’m not writing, I’m usually thinking about a story. If you spot a mad woman rambling to herself at the supermarket checkout, it might be me, working on some dialogue. If we’re chatting and you’re not convinced I’m really listening to you, you’re probably right. I’m likely off in my writer’s head, working on that scene I’ve been struggling with for months. If you catch me staring at you on the bus or in the cafĂ©, don’t be offended. I’m just wondering why you have writing on your shoes, or only one earring or what has made you smile or laugh or get up in the morning, and am turning it into a story. Sorry about that.
