I'm a former daily-newspaperman and a double prizewinner: the Rhys Davies Award for short fiction and, in 2016, the inaugural Templar Shorts award. My first story collection, Funderland, published by Parthian, was praised by the Guardian, the Independent, the Times and many others, and was longlisted for the Edge Hill Prize.
My début poetry collection, Miners At The Quarry Pool, also from Parthian, was described by Agenda poetry magazine as 'a virtuoso performance'. My first novel, Slowly Burning (GG Books) was published in 2016, as was my second story collection, Who Killed Emil Kreisler? (Cultured Llama Publishing).
Last year, Templar published my three-story pamphlet, A Gloucester Trilogy. Based in Monmouthshire, I also write for the Wales Arts Review, Arts Scene in Wales, Slightly Fox
