I am a poet and novelist and have taught writing for many years. I currently teach poetry, fiction and creative nonfiction at Regent's College, London. I'm really interested in the writing process, what goes into what we do and how we can share that with other writers - new and experienced.
I've published two pamphlets of poetry: Inheriting the Ocean (Slow Dancer Press) and in 2012, Behind the Lines with the Word Hoard. My novel, The Priest Fainted, was published by the Women's Press in the UK and by Holt in the US, where it was an LA and New York Times Notable Book of the Year. I'm currently working on a novel based on the myth of Persephone.
