Reader in Creative Writing, University of Bristol

I write narratives for young teens - mainly about recovering from trauma and about our connection to a natural world that has been compromised and mediated by human activities. My stories are hopeful, but realistic and are centred on the life of the family. I have been nominated and short-listed for many literary prizes and was nominated for the Carnegie medal in both 2017 and 2018.

I would be interested in supervising/co supervising PhD research in Creative Writing that concerns Children's Literature, eco-criticism, or issues of representation (usually using Post-Colonial theory).
