About me

I’m an editor and writer based in Surrey, London and Cambridge.

I have a BA in English Literature from Warwick University and an MA in Publishing from UCL. For five years I worked as an editor at Bloomsbury Publishing in London, commissioning academic books on global history.

I’ve been writing ever since I was a child, from the story about my dad finding a tortoise in his slipper when I was eight, to the fantasy quest novel when I was sixteen, to the ‘literary’ novel about a twenty-something graduate struggling to make it as a writer in London when I was a twenty-something graduate struggling to make it as a writer in London. In 2016 I was a student on Faber Academy’s Writing a Novel course, taught by novelist Richard Skinner – a formative six months which transformed my writing from a hobby to a serious craft. Inspired by my experience on the course, in 2018 I decided to leave my job in publishing to focus on my writing (as well as doing some travelling). It’s a step into the unknown, and I’ll be sharing my experiences – as well as some of my writing – on this blog.
