Research Overview

My research in creative writing (research as practice) is in short fiction and short stories, as well as linked short story collections, novels in stories and composite novels. My current creative research is in writing and disability, with a focus on carers and caring. My other area of interest is in speculative fiction, especially work that plays with genre boundaries.
