an aspiring author

“Don’t you ever wonder what happens in between the frames? What happens in that dark line that separates one frozen moment from the next?” That’s the theme of The Wrong Story. You can find out more by clicking here.

Anyway, welcome to my blog – the ramblings, I mean writings, of an aspiring author.


The Wrong Story cover

I am a full-time freelance writer. My first novel, The Wrong Story (see above) was published in March, 2017 and I am currently editing my second novel.

I have had a number of short and flash fiction stories published as well as a travelogue of my journey through Central America. I am a Real Writers prizewinner, a Carers UK prizewinner, and I am on the BBC list of Promising Writers.

I also provide writing services which include structural and developmental editing for fiction, creative writing tutoring, and new writer mentoring.

In the past I have worked as a technical author, a user-experience designer, an information consultant for NGOs and charitable organisations, and as an information and  solution designer for an outsourcing and consultancy company. I have written for most media, including print, online and AV.

I am a graduate of Oxford University’s MSt in Creative Writing and I spent my placement working at an Oxford-based literary agency as a submissions reader. I am a member of the International Flann O’Brien Society and the Society Of Authors.

Included in the short stories that I have had published are:

  • The Therapist
