I'm a freelance writer with a patchwork portfolio from novels and short stories to plays and performance poetry - my collection Crumbs from a Spinning World was published by Burning Eye Books and a collection co-written with Hazel Stewart is out now. Returning in lockdown to my first interest, fiction, in 2020 I published The Price of Bread, a novel set in Northern Ireland at the start of the last 'Troubles' - a time I remember from living there myself - and 37 of my short stories under the title of Déjà Lu, published by Hobnob Press. My latest novel Blow Ins is now also published.
I also have a strong interest in drama, as a playwright and a reviewer, and as co-producer of a pub theatre in Frome in southwest UK. Frome has a lively arts scene which I write about weekly in my blog, and my ‘alternative history’ of our town, FROME UNZIPPED - from Prehistory to Post-Punk, is also published by Hobnob Press.
