I hold an MSc in creative writing from The University of Edinburgh and an MFA from California State University, Long Beach. I was interviewed by BBC Cornwall about my novella, A Cornish Odyssey, in 2022. My novel, Swan Diaries was long listed for the 2020 Exeter Novel Prize. My short story “Life Lessons” was published in The Saturday Evening Post’s Best American Fiction of 2015 with an honourable mention. I have been mentored by both Jacqui Lofthouse of The Writing Coach and Sara Sarre, director of Blue Pencil Agency.  Some of my hobbies include photography, mixed media pieces, and drumming. Like David Sedaris and Tracey Chevalier, I am an American writer living and writing in the United Kingdom. I love my home in St Leonards on Sea, near Hastings and enjoy the creative community there.
