Creative Writing

This is where you can find information and updates about my creative writing.

I published my debut novel, RITES, in 2012. It won the Arts Council England Next Great Novelist Award, and was published by Route Publishing in the UK and Kein & Aber in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. It’s about a virginity pact gone horribly wrong, and the legacies of a Catholic childhood. It’s sort of a coming-of-age story, sort of a psychological thriller, sort of a literary fiction. It won the Arts Council’s Next Great Novelist Award, and Philip Pullman said it was “intriguing, puzzling, and entirely gripping.”  Here are a few reviews from the IndependentSunday ExpressDaily Mail, and Yorkshire Post. You can buy it here.

Since then, I’ve been working on my follow-up. It’s taken long enough, but I hope it’ll be worth the wait.
