I’m a writer from Manchester, UK. My first book, a memoir with the eloquent title My Shitty Twenties, will be published by Salt Publishing on 15th 2017. Click here to pre-order.

I am currently working on a sitcom and recently won a place to develop my script on New Writing North’s Significant Ink programme. I am also writing a young adult novel. This blog is all about writing, reading and what comes after finishing my book…

After achieving a BA (Hons) in History of Art and Design with Practice at Manchester Metropolitan University, I studied MA Writing Studies at Edge Hill University. In 2009, just before I graduated with my Masters, I won an Arvon 41 Grant, which enabled me to go on an unforgettably good course about life writing, high in the hills. In the same year, I won two Manchester Blog Awards: Best Writing on a Blog and Best Personal Blog and was Keynote Speaker at the launch of the North Manchester Girls’ programme for the excellent Reclaim Project. I’ve written for Creative Tourist, The Guardian and Manchester Literature Festival, amongst others.
