2020: The first 5000 words of my debut novel The Middle secured me a space on Penguin Book's highly competitive scheme for under represented writers WRITE NOW and a place on the long-list for their year long mentorship programme. Following a one-to-one with an editor from Penguin I am now completing the first draft of this adult fiction novel that explores themes of sexuality, religion and mental health.

I produced five films made over video call during lockdown through my company Faded Neon Films.
