Hello, and welcome to my website!

I’m a novelist, creative writing tutor, and freelance copywriter.

I write novels and short stories. Some of these have won or been shortlisted for awards. I’ve also been known to dabble in comics, screenwriting, and journalism. I run creative writing workshops for university students, and have written a field guide for aspiring writers called About Writing, which will be published by Luna Press Publishing in 2019.

Find out more about me here.

Use the menu to find links to my books and stories, and the sidebar to find your way to my social media and Patreon sites. And while you’re at it, why not subscribe to my newsletter? It’s the best way to keep up-to-date with everything going on with my books and writing.

If you would like to book me for a workshop or event, or enquire about book rights or other matters, you can find out how to get in touch here.
