I write arts criticism, comic autobiography, prose fiction and poetry.
I write reviews and interviews for the music magazine Loud and Quiet.
I used to write regular reviews and opinion pieces for the Leeds based blog The Culture Vulture, click here for an archive of those.
I blog at the Huffington Post from time to time.
From 2012-2017 I authored the blog Reasons to be Single which won the 2013 Cosmopolitan Blog Award in the ‘Best Sex and Relationships’ category, after being shortlisted from over 40,000 entrants. I now blog, occasionally, at If You Ask Me.
In 2005 I was awarded second place in the Paddon Award for Creative Writing for my short story The Weight of an Echo. My poem Leather Seats and Other Stories was long-listed for the Bridport prize in 2008.
