About

Portrait by Conor Horgan @conorhorgan.

I’m a fiction writer from London who lives between Ireland and Spain. My debut novel, Black Butterflies, is published by Duckworth and was Indie Fiction Book of the Month for May 2022. I have an MA with Distinction and a PhD in Creative Writing from the University of East Anglia and have taught creative writing at U.E.A., Kingston University and City Lit. I currently lecture at University College Dublin and also teach privately online. In my twenties and early thirties, I taught English as a foreign language in England, Spain and Brazil. I read Italian, Spanish and Social Anthropology at Cambridge University.

I’m represented by Sophie Lambert at C&W. Dusty Miller is my publicist. Rowan Cope is my editor at Duckworth Books.
