I’m a short fiction writer and artist living in Warwickshire, UK.
My most recent flash fictions can be seen in the 2019 National Flash Fiction Day Anthology, The Nottingham Review, Ellipsis Zine and Flash Fiction Festival Anthology: Two. Other flash fictions have been published in a number of literary magazines, including Bare Fiction, Litro and The Lonely Crowd. One of my stories flies through the air courtesy of a Short Édition vending machine at Edmonton Aiport in Canada. I’ve also been published in two National Flash Fiction Day anthologies, shortlisted in TSS Publishing’s Flash 400 competition, judged by Helen Rye and Rupert Dastur, and I’ve been a winner of the Mslexia Flashcard. My stories range from the real to the magically real.
I’m seeking a publisher for my novella-in-flash that was Highly Commended in Ellipsis Zine’s inaugural Flash Fiction Competition and was also longlisted in the Bath Flash Fiction Award, earlier this year. My work in progress includes both a collection of flash fiction and another novella-in-flash.
As an artist my work is based around on-location sketching in buildings, cafes, train stations, anywhere that I happen to be, in ink and watercolour. I am co-organiser of Sketch Coventry, a self-led open meet-up, which brings people together to create, no matter what their experience.
I’m artist-in-residence for this year’s National Flash Fiction Day. In my role I created the image on the social media banners and worked to commission for the front cover of the 2019 anthology, And We Pass Through. I also provided sketches for the Write-In online prompts.
