I started writing fiction around 2006, going on to write more than 1,000 flash stories on Twitter; publish dozens of short stories in magazines, websites and journals; win several competitions; headline multiple spoken word events, including Bad Language, Verbose, Spotlight and more; appear at Edinburgh International Book Festival, Bloody Scotland Crime Writing Festival and Kendal Calling music festival; write site-specific pieces for live performance; and have my stories read on podcasts, BBC 6Music and infamous performance night Liars’ League.

I self-published two collections of flash fiction, Marrow and Dare, both of which are now sold out. My debut novel, The Visitors, was published in 2014 by Quercus Books, gaining widespread acclaim and winning both The Guardian Not The Booker prize and the Book Box prize.
