Personal Description:

I am published Penguin author. In 2006 my first book 'A Shape of My Own' came out in hardback, followed by its paperback publication as 'Thin' in 2007. Thin went on to become a bestselling title. I appeared at the Oxford Literary Festival in 2007 as one of Penguin's New Young Writers and have written numerous articles for national press and magazines. My undergraduate degree was in English from Cambridge University, I have a Masters from King's College London and a PhD in English and Humanities.

Teaching Experience:

In 2008 I was Writer in Residence at Eltham College in London teaching creative writing to boys aged 11-16 as part of their English lessons. I created lesson plans and resources, led classes, ran extra-curricular writing clubs and organised a performance evening of creative writing. I conducted a full evaluation of the residency which showed improvements in the boys’ enthusiasm, interest and ability in original writing at both KS3 and GCSE levels. Separately, I also run a series of motivational talks in girls' secondary schools around body image, eating disorders and self-esteem.

Teaching Approach:

I am passionate about words and writing. I am thorough, organised and committed to helping make writing clear and communicate well. I hope I am an example that books can be written and published, and that our words matter.
