I grew up in York and studied English Language and Creative Writing at Lancaster University. I now live in London, where I work as a teaching assistant.

As well as writing fiction ranging from the short to the very short, I am currently seeking representation for my first novel. My current project is audio-drama series, The Family Tree, for which I am a writer and producer.

I’m interested in magical realism and partial to playing with different styles and voices. I love sensory writing, writing that explores the beauty in the mundane and finds the every-day detail we forget to see.
