I started my writing life as a playwright and was shortlisted for the Verity Bargate award in 2000. I was the writer in residence for Soho Theatre 2000 to 2001. Since then I have written several plays, and continued to write poetry and short stories. I’ve recently worked with performance and autobiographical theatre. About two years ago I decided to write a Young Adult fantasy novel (with a little help from my 13 year old grand-daughter). I loved writing for that age group and in that genre and finished the novel during the last lock down. I’m now working on final revisions, looking for an agent, and continuing with the second book in this “series” of three. I feel like I’ve found a real voice for now and I’m excited about continuing to delve deeper into fantasy.
