thoughtful lightness can make frivolity seem dull and heavy‘  Italo Calvino


Welcome to my website – and thank you for taking an interest in my work.

I am a Bath-based writer, a lover of word play and an admirer of the work of Edward Gorey, Angela Carter, AA Milne, Paula Rego, David Bowie and Theatre de Complicite. A bird nerd, recovered Ultimate Frisbee fanatic and sometime surfer, I can be spotted cycling at speed through the city on my way to work, the theatre, a poetry reading, a pub or yoga class.

I have strong links with the USA, both through my day job and as a dedicated transatlantic dad.

I’m always happy to hear from readers of my work. Do get in touch if you’d like to share your thoughts.
