I am a Midlands-based writer working in Higher Education. 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 is a loose reinterpretation of the Greek Myth Pandora's Box, and tells the story of aspiring jewellery designer Dora Blake and her encounter with an ancient vase that her tyrannical uncle is desperately keen to keep a secret. It was shortlisted for the 2020 Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize and was longlisted for the 2020 Bath Novel Award.
I'm always thrilled to hear from readers and fellow writers. I can be found on Twitter and Instagram.
