Personal profile

Research interests

I'm a fiction writer, librettist and freelance columnist and critic. My research interests include the short story; a literary woman's place in the life of the city; the London novel; the relationship between music, or sound, and text; mid-century modern collaborators; the life and work of Jean Rhys; developments in the UK publishing industry.

Current projects include: 'Myfanwy Piper - the domestic goddess who turned the screw,' originally a conference paper for Oxford Centre for Life Writing,  to be published by Bloomsbury. 

I've published short stories with Serpent's Tail, Riptide Journal, Mechanics Institute Review and others. My operatic collaboratoins have taken me to all sorts of places, from the Royal Opera House - 'The Trial of Jean Rhys' - to the (now sadly demolished) foot tunnels beneath the Elephant and Castle roundabout.

I'm a regular arts critic for the local press and write a monthly column for Viva Lewes. Less regularly I've written for the national press on a variety of subjects from nuclear attack to Y-Fronts.

I help to run the Lewes Lit, which has been presenting great talks by great writers for more than 70 years. This year I have chaired events with the culture writer and classicist Charlotte Higgins and novelist and journalist Linda Grant. In October I will be presenting novelist and columnist Susie Boyt. www.lewesliterarysociety.co.uk
