I am a writer and journalist.  Read all about my thoughts on life, love, and the world, as I navigate writing and raising boys.


Apparently I need a website. Here it is.

The Best Most Awful Job

Very excited to be part of this anthology. We go to print on February 6th and hit the shops in May. I’ve written about Maternal Rage. As with everything I write, I’ve tried to be completely honest. I hope it makes mothers feel seen.

The Khan Picked Up By Point Blank!

My first novel, The Khan, is out in a year’s time! It’s being published by Point Blank and I’ve looking forward to the coming months of edits. It’s also the reason why I’ve set up this site. Bear with me as I navigate the world of websites. Many thanks!
