Biography

I’m a novelist. My first novel, 'Ours are the Streets', was published in 2011 with 'The Year of the Runaways' following in 2015. I’m currently writing my third, 'China Room', to be published by Harvill Secker in 2021. I have taught creative writing to students and writers, on both university and residential courses.

I'm interested in writing and editing prose fiction.
