Do I write literary or genre fiction, slipstream, dark fantasy, speculative fiction or social surrealism or just plain weird shit? I write across several genres and sometimes that “L” word (and in this particular case, I’m not talking about a preference for ladies) has been attached to my work. Whatever you want to call it, I hope this blog will provide some useful information about my writing.
I first started to get serious about writing when I helped produce ‘zines in the 1990s like Feminaxe and Bad Attitude. I laid out pages and contributed articles, reviews and interviews. Then I began to make stuff up. My fiction has since found its way to places like Midnight Street, Postscripts, The Third Alternative and its successor Black Static. I also completed a creative writing MA at Sheffield Hallam University.
My novella Helen’s Story was released by PS Publishing in 2013, and later received a nomination for the Shirley Jackson Award. Other work in print includes stories and novellas in anthologies – you can find out more about these on the Short Fiction page and you’ll also find a story on the Free Fiction page. And of course, many of these tales are now collected in Resonance & Revolt.
I still write some non-fiction, usually in the form of extended rants on union, community and campaign websites.
I live in South London where I engage in a variety of occupations including care work and freelance editing. I enjoy strong coffee, whisky and raucous music of all kinds. Though I once played bass in a band called the Sluts from Outer Space, I now confine my musical activities to listening, dancing and writing stories about it.
