When I was eight years old, I discovered that my local newspaper paid 25p for a published letter and 50p for a 'star' letter.
A writer was born.
I abandoned my life as a pint-sized hack journalist, flirted with poetry and then found my voice in fiction, which has absorbed me ever since.
I now split my time between Hastings and London, where I write fiction and teach creative writing. I am the author of numerous short stories and a novel, The Birdskin Shoes.
