About me

ABOUT ME – In 2014 the first draft of my debut novel The Doctor’s Daughter was selected for a Free Read by The Literary Consultancy (TLC), a manuscript assessment awarded on merit. The completed novel received interest from a number of literary agents and publishing houses, but ultimately I made the decision to publish it with CompletelyNovel.

My debut poetry collection ‘Melodies of my Other Life’ was published by indie press Winter Goose Publishing in 2013. Since then I have been featured in several poetry publications and have developed my fiction writing skills through training with the Arvon Foundation.

I have been writing since my teens and during my career have penned several feature articles printed in the national media. In 2012 I started a 30-day writing and blogging challenge during which I won two poetry contests.
