My research in creative writing is in short fiction and short stories, as well as linked short story collections, novels in stories and composite novels. I am also interested in war writing and trauma. My current creative research is in the novel and disability, as well as merging genre(s) and literary fiction. 

PhD Supervision Interests

I am interested in supervising projects in short stories, linked short story collections, 'novels in stories' and 'in between' forms. I am interested in writing that has a political focus, as well as novels that merge genre and literary fiction.

Career Details

Since 2005 I have worked as an associate lecturer at Manchester Metropolitan University, The University of Bolton and Edge Hill University. I have also facilitated creative writing workshops around Manchester and the North West on a freelance basis. My most recent workshop was with English PEN and Help for Heroes at Tedworth House recovery centre. 

Over the past few years I have published my short stories widely in the UK. My sequence of short stories was published by Comma Press in 2006, and my full length collection of short stories, The War Tour, was published in 2011.

I have given numerous readings at literature festivals and events over the past few years, and continue to do so. 

Thesis Title

When I Get Home: A Collection of Short Stories and Accompanying Critical Commentary

Current Research

My current work in progress is a novel about the affects of illness, disability and caring on a family. It merges literary fiction and genre fiction. 

My forthcoming work will be a 'novel in stories'.
