My most substantial works are my two novels currently available, which can be seen below.

Riftmaster is a novel about a college student who finds himself whisked away from Earth by a mysterious and unpredictable force known as the Rift.

It is a story of identity, loss, and what it means to be human.

It is available as an eBook from various online stores including Kindle, Google Books, and iBooks. It is also available in paperback from amazon and some book shops.

This book is illustrated with 20+ unique chapter icons designed by me!

The Forge and the Flow is a fantasy novella which takes place on another world inhabited by two intelligent species called the Ailura and the Lutra. It is a story of union between two very different cultures, and was written as a gift to my husband on our wedding day.

This story has themes of renewal, self-discovery, and forging new traditions while remembering your roots.

More info coming soon!

Anthologies

I have contributed to several anthologies and books of short stories.

In addition to being one of two illustrators in both volumes of Simon Berry’s Gilesgate Story Challenge, I have also done the editing, typesetting, and compilation work on both volumes and the upcoming volume three! This is a local charity project geared towards inspiring and publishing young writers from ages 5-16. All funds earned from the 2020 book go to local charities RT Projects and the Cheesy Waffles Foundation.

I also contributed a biographical essay to Laura Kate Dale’s Gender Euphoria. My contribution to this book was the story ‘My Husband’s Husband’. For this I shared the story of our wedding day, and all the legalities we had to consider when planning our wedding to make it truly ours.

Events and Masterclasses

I have planned and led numerous masterclasses at New Writing North young writers group, in which I taught young people between the ages of 12 and 19 creative writing skills and techniques, and led a variety of activities.

My biggest event to date was a part in the Durham Children’s Book and Fun Day, where I held drop-in writing sessions based on wildlife and nature entitled Creature Chaos. My session was very well received with dozens of participants over the course of the day.

I frequently hold stalls at events, festivals at markets to meet my readers and sign books.

I have also spoken on several radio and news broadcasts, mostly in relation to these events.
