A link to my books

The Camera Obscure is a collection of supernatural, dystopian and magical realist stories which surprise and challenge, sometimes amuse. This collection holds up a mirror to the darkest sides of the human psyche, reflecting universal themes and experiences with a nod to the Victorian Gothic era.

Tourist to the Sun is a collection of poetry with the overriding theme of the brevity of time. A range of poetic forms are included with some highly visual imagery and richly observed detail. The poems have been performed on stage and on BBC Radio, as well as individually published in acclaimed literary journals.
