About

I am a writer and teacher of writing. My debut novel, Three Graves (or, Three Graves for you, Mr Burgess), will be published by Bluemoose Books in 2021. It is a novel about Anthony Burgess.

In 2019, I won the Aesthetica Creative Writing Award.

I received my Phd in 2019 from University of Salford, Three Graves was first written as part of this research project. I am a senior lecturer at Leeds Arts Univeristy, teaching on the Creative Writing BA, starting in the 2020/21 academic year. I also teach at University of Salford and University of Leeds.

I hope to upload bits of writing and news here. Who knows, maybe even a blog.
