An Irish writer and playwright and 2009 UEA Creative Writing MA alumna, I am currently a Doctoral Fellow with Lincoln University researching a PhD on New Writing at the Royal Court Theatre. My drama credits include seven BAI-funded radio plays: Cow (2013), The Daffodil (2014), Cake (2014), Strongbow’s Clock (2014) The Cat in the Box (2015), Shellakybooky (2015) and The Angel of Trafadden (2015). BBC Radio 4 broadcast my short story Mussels in August 2015, one of three stories selected annually for the Opening Lines initiative. I have also won the Sussex Playwrights’ Award and my plays featured 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. A 2013 Escalator Writer, I previously lived in Budapest, Hungary for eleven years and speak Hungarian. I now live in London.
