Short story writer, obsessed with the absurd in the everyday.

Background Information

I have been writing in various forms (poetry, screenwriting, short stories) since the age of 15. My style has been developed through evening courses, University and in writing groups that I have organised myself.

My main influences are Raymond Carver, Franz Kafka, Kurt Vonnegut, John Burnside, Bret Easton Ellis and Hubert Selby Jnr., amongst others.

My passion is to explore the absurdities in everyday life. Taking situations to the extreme to test the accepted reality we live in.

I am currently working on a collection of interlinked short stories that are partly inspired by my many years of working part time in retail while completing my two honours degrees.

I appreciate any feedback and advice and will strive to return the favour if possible.

Thank you.
