Profile summary

  • Research Student in Creative Writing

Professional biography

I’m currently writing a family saga set in Brighton.  It’s called An A-Z of The Weatheralls, and features old cinemas, police families, and British Sign Language.

The critical element of my PhD will focus on the act of remembering, and how it might be disrupted and distorted.  What happens to a memory when we forget the language in which it was stored? 

I am finding the experience of writing in academia to be very stimulating, especially observing how various disciplines (anthropology, oral history, psychoanalysis) might challenge and inform my fictional concerns.

I’ve written four novels, the first of which, Blackmoor, was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award, and won the Desmond Elliott Prize.  Two of my novels were written for teenagers, including Daylight Saving, a ghost story set on a holiday park, which was shortlisted for the Branford Boase.  I live in Brighton with my family.
