About me

Currently working on an historical novel set in 5th Century Cornwall. Originally part of an oral storytelling project in Cambridge, this has evolved from its Arthurian beginnings into an alternate history of the British Isles – in fact what began as a single novel has the potential to become an entire series spanning centuries.

I am also working on a novel based around a 1970s folk-rock band, but this period falls outside the 50 year definition of ‘historical fiction’ 🙁

As for me, my bio, I have published two contemporary novels with Random House and taught creative writing for the University of Cambridge. I am Co-Founder of the Penzance Writers’ Cafe and am involved with the running of the Penzance Literary Festival. I am also planning a range of workshops at the Exchange Gallery in Penzance
