From Ireland via Hungary and living in the UK, I am a 2009 UEA Creative Writing MA alumna. My short stories and drama have won the Molly Keane Memorial Award, the HISSAC Prize, the Meridian Prize, the Waterford-Annaghmakerrig Award and the Ted O’Regan Arts Award. I was a finalist for the Fish Short Story Competition amongst fifteen other shortlistings. My drama credits include two BAI-funded radio plays, Cow (2013) and The Daffodil (2014) directed by acclaimed playwright Jim Nolan. I won the Sussex Playwrights’ Award and have shortlisted for the BBC International Playwriting, BBC Writersroom 4, The Script HotHouse and Shoreline Screenwriters’ Awards. My three UK-based staged readings include the 2013 European Festival of Contemporary Drama. My prose has been published in seven international literary publications. I am an 2013 Escalator Prose Artist, through which I was a successful applicant for an Arts Council grant to write my debut novel which my agent submitted to publishers in 2014. I served as artist-in-residence on Inis Oirr (2013). I currently teach creative writing at a Norfolk prison.
