An Irish writer, playwright and UEA Creative Writing MA alumna, I am currently a Doctoral Fellow with Lincoln University researching a PhD on the Royal Court Theatre in the 1970s. My own drama credits include eight radio plays, broadcast on BBC Radio 4 and in my native Ireland. I won the 2012 Sussex Playwrights’ Award and presented in the 2013 Festival of Contemporary European Drama. My short-stories have won seven national prizes including the Molly Keane Prize and the HiSSAC Award and are published in nine literary publications. I was a 2013 Escalator Writer. I previously lived in Budapest, Hungary for eleven years and speak Hungarian. I now live in London where I am a literary assistant at the Finborough Theatre.
