I’m a features writer who spends quite a lot of my spare time a) writing fiction and b) asking myself why exactly I am writing fiction.

That’s why I started this blog – as a way of motivating myself and other writers – because sometimes it’s hard working alone.

I blog tips about trying to find a literary agent (I’m no expert as I haven’t found one yet, but I’ve learnt a lot about the process along the way). I also share ideas to inspire you (and me) to keep writing despite the down days.

My most ambitious project is my novel, The Maid’s Room. It’s book group fiction / upmarket women’s commercial fiction, and I have high hopes for it. Three weeks ago, I started submitting it again. I’ll let you know how that goes…..

In the meantime, I’m about to start book two, and I write short stories. Check out ‘Plenty More Where You Came From’ which won the Frome Short Story Competition last year. Find more of my published work below.

I’m on Twitter if you want to follow me.
