I grew up in the historic Georgian city of Lichfield before moving on to spend four years in the coastal town of Aberystwyth, graduating with a BA in Education & English Literature and an MA in Creative Writing. My debut novel Pandora will be published in January 2022 by Harvill Secker, with other territories to follow. It is a loose reinterpretation of the Greek Myth Pandora's Box, telling the story of aspiring jewellery artist Dora Blake and her encounter with an ancient vase which her tyrannical uncle is desperately keen to keep a secret. The novel was shortlisted for the 2020 Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize and longlisted for the Bath Novel Award that same year.
I'm always thrilled to hear from readers and fellow writers. I can be found on Twitter and Instagram, or contacted using the form provided.
