Research overview

I am a creative writing practitioner with a successful ten year career in the publishing industry. My creative career has dovetailed with practice-led research in academia.

I specialise in writing, researching and teaching literature for young people. Much of my work is concerned with positive representations of working class childhoods and of non-traditional families. I also have an interest in transnational literature, especially the creative potential of artists working between languages.

I am interested in supervising projects in the field of writing for young people.
