    Personal profile

    Research interests

    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. 

    Reviews of my work have said:

    '...captures an authentic teen voice...the writing is hauntingly beautiful​.'
                                                                                      ​  The Bookbag
    'Empathetic, vivid and humane...'
                                                                                         Sunday Times
    'A skilled storyteller...'
                                                                                         Publishers Weekly

    'Not for the faint-hearted... expert rite-of-passage...'
                                                                                        The Observer

    '...movingly explores the interconnectedness of our minds, bodies, spirituality and physical environment...' 
                                                                                         BookTrust

    I also write and research about Creative Writing pedagogy in the academy and am interested in how Creative Writing can work with other disciplines to express complex concepts or scenarios. 

    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).
