I am an award-winning writer who has worked in film, television and prose. I like to write between the margins, about people we don’t often see in our stories.
My film My Loneliness is Killing Me won a Bafta Scotland Award, and I am currently developing several projects for television.
I have written fiction and nonfiction for children and young adults, including The Extraordinary Life of Alan Turing and The Extraordinary Life of Freddie Mercury for Puffin. I also have a short story featured in Juno Dawson’s Proud.
I edited We Were Always Here, an anthology of queer Scottish writing, for 404 Ink.
I have a background in youth work and working with LGBTI+ communities. I set up and ran Trans Youth Glasgow, and previously worked on LGBT History Month Scotland.
I have worked in schools, and lectured on queer film and television.
I have read in a range of different settings, taken part in panels and hosted events around the UK.
My favourite workshops to run are on inspiring creativity, coming up with new ideas and using our own experiences in our writing.
I am especially keen to chair panels on writing for Young Adults and queer writing.
