ABOUT ME

I wrote my first novel when I was six years old. The Amazing Panda Roo Roo was a big hit with my audience of mum and dad. It was self-illustrated and stapled together on the right-hand side because I am a proud left-hander.

 

Eleven Bodies, the young adult novel I'm a currently working on, was shortlisted for the Yeovil Literary Prize 2017 and was awarded 2nd place in the Soaring Stories Competition at the Winchester Writers' Festival 2017. I am also a prize-winning short story writer, and was shortlisted for the Bridport Prize in 2017. I have a particular interest in speculative fiction.

When I'm not moonlighting as a writer, I work as a nurse in York UK, and daydream about snow and skiing.
