About me and my writing

Born in London and raised mostly in Yorkshire, I have British and Nigerian* heritage and write for both adults and children. I came to writing via a circuitous route. Or rather, my writing was hijacked by other careers along the way, beginning with a stint as a hairdresser in London’s West End. After forsaking hairdressing for a science degree, postgraduate studies led to work in the fields of biomedical and environmental research. I now divide my time between editing scientific publications and writing fiction. (The two marry well.)

My first book was Cloudscapes over the Lune, a collaboration with Mary Sylvia Winter, Melissa Bailey, Sarah Dobbs and Kay Douglas to raise money for two children’s charities. Current projects include a linked story collection and a children’s book.



I’m delighted to have won a Northern Writers’ Award to support the development of my new short story collection.
