I’m a prize-winning flash fiction writer living in Warwickshire, UK.
I co-run the National Flash Fiction Day Novella-in-Flash Award. I’m also Artist-in-Residence for NFFD.
In 2020 my manuscript Seventy Percent Water won the Ellipsis Zine Flash Fiction Collection Competition for debut authors and was published in July.
My novella-in-flash is on the recently announced 2021 Bath Flash Fiction Award long-list.
My stories have been widely published in literary magazines and anthologies, and listed in competitions. You can see a list of my writing credits, along with links, by visiting my WRITING page.
I am now in my third year as artist-in-residence for National Flash Fiction Day. In my role I have created artwork for the 2020 anthology, Root, Branch, Tree and for the 2019 anthology And We Pass Through. In 2021 I will be creating the ten year anniversary front cover.
In 2020 I was commissioned to create the artwork for Alison Woodhouse‘s novella-in-flash The House on the Corner. Alison’s manuscript received a Special Commendation in the annual Bath Novella-in-Flash Award. My artwork also appears on Diane Simmons’ Saboteur Award nominated collection of flash fiction, Finding a Way. Both Alison’s and Diane’s books are published by the award-winning Ad Hoc Fiction. The cover of my flash fiction collection Seventy Percent Water also features one of my paintings.
