My short stories have been published in Lighthouse Journal, Tender, The Best of British Short Stories, The Dublin Review, The Short Anthology and The Lonely Crowd among other places. In 2014, I was shortlisted for the Sunday Times Short Story Award. My first book, a collection of short stories, Blind Water Pass, was published by John Murray in May 2016. In the summer of 2017, I was writer in residence at Organhaus Art Gallery in Chongqing, China. Prior to joining the University of Birmingham, I taught literature, creative writing and critical theory at the University of East Anglia, Norwich.
