Writing is my vocation, my passion, the air I breathe. I love developing the psychology of my characters, crafting the plot as I write, while letting the story, at times, take me by surprise. With every new novel I start, I challenge myself to explore a new style, structure, or narrative device.
I weave in narratives and viewpoints, exploring themes, such as grief, loss, projection, manipulation, and deceit. All my stories contain an element of suspense, without providing all the answers, and raise questions which, I believe, are relevant to our shared human experience.
I have been writing accessible literary fiction since 2007, penning four novels:
Heading for the Wall (2014)
Not to Hold (2018)
L’éloge de l’ombre (2011)
I mentor aspiring writers and have led six-week creative writing courses, as well as workshops, with Cambridge Community Arts (CCA) and the Workers’ Educational Association (WEA). I've also designed an online writing course (to be relaunched in 2022).
