About the Artist
I wrote plays and short stories in my teens and 20s (won Edinburgh Uni Short Story comp, had a play performed in Edinburgh Fringe via the Scottish Youth Theatre). Then had very long hiatus in creative writing while bringing up a daughter with disabilities, and have only returned to my own work in the last couple of years, concentrating on short stories and plays (plus some poetry). I had two short plays in a show at the 2015 Brighton Festival Fringe, nominated for Brighton & Hove Independent Award. I was long-listed for the 2013 Bridport Prize Flash Fiction category, and shortlisted for the 2015 international Erbacce Prize for poetry.
