My fiction writing

My fiction is queer. I particularly like to write about mistresses and their hidden lives – as Anaïs Nin would say – those ‘spies in the house of love’. A mysterious and ghostly figure – there’s much treasure in her secrets, but these gems are lost among judgment, shaming and censorship – often at the hands of their powerful partners. It’s time for her to tell her story.

*DEBUT NOVEL!*

I’m now working on my debut sci-fi novel, which places one of those ‘spies in the house of love’ at the centre of her own story. The mistress protagonist goes on a time-bending metafictional adventure in which she begins to confront her horrifying story, and claim her extraordinary power, through a strange book written by a silicone gender-fluid future-being. *I’m proud and excited to now be working with MOIST Books to publish the novel in Spring as part of their 2023 collection which is funded by the Arts Council.*

I also sometimes write about sex and weird and wonderful encounters – I believe erotica has huge potential for healing and exploring (particularly queer) desire.
