Welcome to my site. I’m a writer of stories that blend my passions of science, history, people watching and the natural world, seasoned with a pinch of autobiographical flavour. I’m fascinated with our histories and sense of identity, our roots and backgrounds, and how our memories and childhoods impact our inner and outer worlds.

My debut novella, The Battle of Watling Street, was published in 2017;  I’m currently working on the sequel,  a contemporary sci-fi novel, The Bondage of The Soil I’m also currently working on a novel set in 1970’s Troubles-torn Northern Ireland,  And the Buntings Flew

My short and flash fiction stories have twice been longlisted for the Reflex Fiction Prize in 2017 and 2018; you can read a selection of my published stories here

I’m the founder and editor of the flash fiction quarterly ezine Strippedlit500, showcasing new short fiction up to 500 words.

I enjoy blogging about the process of writing and its trials, tribulations, triumphs and any handy finds I come across that may be of use to fellow writers.
