News from me! Last summer I was awarded a Developing Your Creative Practice grant from the Arts Council to write my novel about my experiences in hospital with anorexia, combined with a fictional twist around a relationship. Work has been so busy that I’ve not looked at my project so this week took myself away for a bit of a retreat. Pleased to say first draft is complete and it’s with a developmental editor!

The reissued version of the anthology The Colour of Madness – for which I wrote a chapter – was published on 12 May, and is now available to buy.  

I Miss Amy Winehouse has been selected for the Boom Chicago Comedy Festival in Amsterdam this July! I’m part of The Storytelling Showcase on Friday 8 July. 

I’m heading up to Edinburgh Fringe with the show for the full run!
