I’m a freelance editor and journalist with six years’ experience writing about lifestyle, culture, feminism and sexuality. As well as being a frequent contributor to BBC Radio 4′s Woman’s Hour, I’ve written for a variety of print and online publications including The Guardian, The Independent, the Literary Review, Diva magazine, Bitch, The F Word and xoJane. Whenever I have a crisis of career confidence I think I’d make a very good spy and try to apply for MI5 even though I’m indiscreet when I’m drunk, have a terrible credit rating and occasionally write about sex on the internet.
My fiction has been nominated for several awards, including the Cheshire Prize for Literature (‘The Art of Stonemasonry’, Zoo, Chester University Press, 2010) and the Gaylactic Spectrum Short Story Award (‘City of the Dead’, Haunted Hearths and Sapphic Shades, Lethe Press, 2008). I’ve been longlisted for the Cinnamon Press Short Story Prize, and I am currently seeking representation for my first novel The Wages of Sin, a historical thriller set in Victorian Edinburgh.
I really like tea, cats, pretty notebooks, riot grrl, tattoos and any piece of classical music that gives the cello the attention it deserves.
