I’m a writer represented by literary agent Rowan Lawton of Furniss Lawton.

Here, I blog about writing competitions, writing advice and whole bunch of other stuff. I also give tips about trying to find a literary agent – a process beset by rejection letters and a much bruised ego, if you’re anything like me.

My most ambitious project is my novel, The Maid’s Room. It’s book group fiction / upmarket women’s commercial fiction, and I have everything crossed for it. I’ve just started work on another book too.

I also write short stories, and am delighted to have been shortlisted for the Bristol Short Story Prize for the third year running. Check out my story, ‘Plenty More Where You Came From’, which won the Frome Short Story Competition last year. And find more of my published short stories below.

Oh, and I’m on Twitter  too if you want to follow me.
