I am a novelist and short story writer and sometime poet. I teach creative writing at The University of the West Indies, St Augustine where I am the coordinator of the MFA Creative Writing.
I gained a PhD at Lancaster University in creative writing and also taught in the department for over seven years. I moved on to Kurdistan, Northern Iraq and taught at Soran University for four years, developing the curriculum and heading the English department.
In addition to university teaching, I have ten years experience working in the community with writing projects. I was co-editor of The Suitcase Book of Love Poems and the anthology Migration Stories. Recent publications include a short story, Streamlining, in Closure Anthology, 2016. My debut novel, A House With No Angels will be published by Crocus Press.
