I’m a queer, transgender writer and editor of SFF and nonfiction. In 2020 I was awarded a Scottish Book Trust New Writer Award for fiction. For more information about my current projects in-progress see ‘fiction’ and ‘nonfiction’.
I’m the Writer in Residence at Lighthouse, Edinburgh’s radical bookshop, where I chair events, blog and run workshops.
I’m also a short story critic for Carve literary magazine, who specialise in short realist fiction with a strong emotional core, in the tradition of Raymond Carver. Students of Carve’s creative writing course, Carve Classroom, submit short fiction for feedback. I act as a kind of short story “doctor”, diagnosing what about each short story could be improved, tightened up, or otherwise made more effective.
