Missing Nancy was my first novel, no. 2 should be out in 2018. I'm currently working on a new novel. My short stories have won a number of prizes, including the Lichfield, and many of them have appeared in anthologies published by, amongst others: Honno, Route, Mslexia, The New Writer, New Welsh Review and Accent Press. I am under contract to write stories for three leading women's magazines and my work has appeared many times. I have also published two text books: The Novel, A Perfect Recipe and The Short Story, a guide to writing short stories. Both these books have evolved from my years as a creative writing tutor. I work for three local authorities, teaching students novel and short story writing. I also work closely with new writers, aimed at getting their work published.
