About Me

I’m an award-winning teen author, experienced school speaker and creative workshop co-ordinator.

I have appeared at several festivals as a speaker, including Hay-on-Wye (2016), Oxford (2016), Highgate & Hampstead (2015) and Chichester.

I am happy to hold author talks or run creative workshops within schools and other arenas.

I am experienced in supporting young people within a school environment and am particularly interested in working with beginner writers. I am an experienced school speaker and am represented by Stephanie Thwaites at Curtis Brown
