About me

b and w

My short story collection First Fox comes out from UK publisher The Emma Press in May 2017. Flash Frontier have included excerpts in their latest issue.

I have a series of readings on YouTube and SlideShare, and also post flash fiction street art – PinUps. 

My stories have appeared in a number of journals including Numéro Cinq, Litro and Ika, and have been placed in competitions such as the Sunday Star-Times Short Story Awards and Ireland’s Fish Flash Fiction Prize.

I won the Lilian Ida Smith Award in 2009 and hold a Master of Creative Writing (First Class Honours). See my SlideShare presentation Literary Benefits of Linguistic and Cultural Hybridity for an overview.

My favourite authors include Grace Paley, Lucia Berlin and Katherine Mansfield.

Other loves are opera and beer.
