I am a writer and feminist activist. My debut novel, Golddigger, won the Golden Crown Literary Society award for historical fiction in 2016. I am currently working on my third lesbian historical novel as part of an AHRC funded PhD in Creative Writing at the Seamus Heaney Centre. I have also written four LGBT+ themed plays. I have been a Women Aloud NI member since it started and have been Chair since August 2020.
