Bio

Distressed, damaged and grey...Born in East Kent in 1970, I was educated at the University of East Anglia. A career in IT followed, and continues to pay the bills. In 2007 I made a hesitant return to fiction, and returned to UEA as well, with their diploma in Creative Writing.

My stories have appeared in Unthology No 1, Streetcake magazine and Alliterati magazine, whilst three poems have appeared in The Artillery Of Words magazine. In 2012, I was a winner of Comma Press's Short Story Day "story in ten words or less" competition.

My first collection of short fiction, Dark Steps, was published in August 2011. Two standalone short stories, Turn Around Where Possible and Cold, followed in 2012. In a departure from fiction, in 2013 I finally published my short narrative on living without supermarkets, Tesc-No. And in a nod to the day job, I am also the author of Accessory, an e-workbook for Microsoft Access developers.

I am currently working on a novel-length work, Drawn To The Deep End.
