Biography

I was an English teacher for over twenty-five years and left the profession in order to focus on my own writing and to set up my own company. Writers’ Cwtch delivers bespoke Writing for Well-being workshops. As part of my PhD, I am researching  the impact of realistic YA fiction on teenage well-being and engagement.

My first YA novel, Asterix Clementine, was shortlisted for the Times / Chicken House Children’s’ Fiction Competition and I’m represented by  The Blair Partnership. My agent is Josephine Hayes. I am currently working on my second YA novel, The Sunshiners.

I was a recipient of a Literature Wales Bursary and I am part of the Hay Writers at Work collective.
