I’m a writer and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. I’m the author of two novels: The Buddha’s Bone (2021) and Gods of Avalon Road (2019). I have also published five poetry collections: The Redundancy of Tautology (2021); Chemotherapy for the Soul (2017); A Model Archaeologist (2015); Metamorphosis of Woman (2013); Toebirds and Woodlice (2013).

My writing centres around main characters who thought they knew themselves, have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of self.

In addition to writing and promoting my own work, I run Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing ezine, with my writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from literary pursuits, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our lively literary tot, a voracious reader of construction vehicle books.

Writing influences:

I began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in my writing. 

My former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired my writing and I have incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both my fiction and poetry.
