BUY THE PAPERBACK BUY FOR KINDLE THE BOOK OF SMALL CHANGES Sixty-five very short stories. The Book Of Small Changes takes its inspiration from the wisdom of the Chinese I Ching, replacing those ancient fortunes with new stories: where the sea mourns for those it has lost, where encyclopaedia salesmen weave their accidental magic, and where the only true gift for a king is the silence of snow.

SYNAESTHESIA MAGAZINEApril 2014 Edition'Watching' - Runner up - 2014 Short Story PrizeIn 'Watching', we meet a mysterious first person narrator and immediately wonder who it is and what they want with the young boy who is the object of their fascination. I was kept guessing throughout the story, the writer wrong-footing me several times before the end. When you keep a reader dangling like that, you've got to make sure the reveal at the end is unexpected and satisfying, and in this story, it most definitely was."- Adam Marek - competition judgeSynaesthesia Magazine

I have been writing short fiction for over a decade and began writing flash fiction in 2012 at a class run by Vanessa Gebbe (author of “Short Circuit” and “The Coward’s Tale”) and Tania Hershman (author of “My mother was an upright piano”) at the New Writing South Workshop in Brighton. It was a great day I can heartily recommend to anyone.
Before that I wrote lots of longer short fiction and completed an MA in Creative and Critical Writing at Winchester University, graduating in 2010.
These days, in between rescuing sheep from the brambles on the farm next door, I have completed a book of longer short stories and I am writing my first novel.
I live and work near Alton, Hampshire.
