Her commissioned short stories, journalism, and poetry have been published in various anthologies and magazines and readings have led her to Turkey, India, Sweden and Italy. In 2016 her collection Talk You Round Till Dusk was published by Burning Eye Books.

All The Journeys I Never Took is a collection of poetry and prose which offers a personal account of what it’s like to leave behind the middle man – lover, father, priest – and discover our place in the world. A place which echoes with unravelling journeys, first dates, breakups, family and confidences. Sometimes confessional, sometimes political, this collection explores what a contemporary definition of home might be; something physical, a person, a concept best left behind or a destination to keep heading towards.
