Personal profile

Research interests

I write novels for teenagers and adults that explore identity, class and the formation of self, as well as books for younger children celebrating curiosity and non-conformity, often through the device of comedy. I've been nominated three times for the Carnegie Medal, and shortlisted for the Roald Dahl Funny Prize and the Lollies, while the TV adaptation of Joe All Alone is now a BAFTA-winning and Emmy-nominated BBC drama. I'm on the editorial board of Leaf Journal on Writing for Young People and peer review for Bloomsbury. 

I'm interested in supervising/co-supervising PhD research in Creative Writing that focuses on children's literature; delves into questions about self and multiple identity, including through a neuroscientific lens; or which features narratives exploring class, especially those set in the 20th century. However, please note that I am currently at supervisory capacity until at least 2026.
