From Ireland via Hungary and living in the UK, I graduated from the 2009 UEA MA in Creative Writing. My short stories and drama have won the Molly Keane Memorial Award, the HISSAC Prize, the Sussex Playwrights’ Prize, the Meridian Prize, the Waterford-Annaghmakerrig Award and the Ted O’Regan Arts Award. I have also been short-listed for the Fish Short Story Competition, the BBC International Playwriting Award and the Shoreline International Screenwriting Award, amongst fourteen other short-listings. My prose has been published in seven international literary publications. ‘Cow’, a BAI funded radio drama I wrote and produced, was broadcast on April, 2013 and my radio drama series ‘The Daffodil’ will go into production in December, 2013. I am an 2013 Escalator Prose artist, a professional development scheme through which I was a successful applicant for an Arts Council grant to write my debut novel ‘The Hole in the Moon’, which I have now completed. My screenplay adaptation of the same has been selected for Creative East’s Script HotHouse Scheme. I have served as artist-in-residence on Inis Oirr, Aran Islands and I currently teach creative writing at a Norfolk prison.
