I am the author of two published novels, I Have Waited, and You Have Come and After Phoenix. I’ve recently submitted my third novel, which has taken me to California, Brazil and Brighton and has a variety of working titles, for publication, and have just begun writing its sequel.

I’ve also published short fiction in various anthologies and am an occasional contributor to Writing Magazine.

Until recently I worked as an artist manager in the music industry. From September 2015 I will be programme leader on a new MA in Creative Writing and Publishing at West Dean college near Chichester.

I am the grateful recipient of funding from Arts Council England and am a member of The Society of Authors, English PEN and The Alliance of Independent Authors
