I’m a fiction writer, book reviewer, freelance editor and writing mentor. Basically, my life is all books, all the time.
My writing has been optioned for TV, adapted for stage, translated into Chinese, Italian, Japanese and Spanish, recorded for radio and podcasts, exhibited in galleries, and distributed from a vintage Wurlitzer cigarette machine. I regularly perform at events and festivals throughout the UK and Europe, and I teach online workshops about writing – you can find details of upcoming events here.
My latest book is Now She is Witch (Harvill Secker, 2023), a queer medieval witch revenge quest. Forthcoming is The Unfamiliar (Virago, 2023), a memoir of queer pregnancy and parenthood. I’m also the author of two previous novels, three story collections, two chapbooks, a 10-hour audio play for Audible, and several collaborative projects with musicians and visual artists.
I live in Glasgow with my wife Annie, our baby, and our rescue dog. I like to read books, drink coffee, swim, fall into YouTube pits, listen to podcasts, and dream of the sea.
