I live in the Suffolk countryside with my husband and daughter.  I studied English Literature at the University of York, Theatre and Arts Management at Goldsmiths College and Creative Writing at Birkbeck College.

On graduating from Birkbeck, I won the Michael Donaghy Prize for Poetry 2009.

I have worked in new writing theatre, literature development and museums, and have also taught creative writing in a wide range of community settings.

I am a member of The Poetry Society.
