I was shortlisted for the Harry Bowling Novel Award in 2006, longlisted for the Betty Bolingbroke-Kent Novel Award in 2005, and shortlisted for the Royal Literary Fund Awards in 2004 and the Asham Award for Women Writers in 2003. I'm one of the directors of publishing company, Goldenford Publishers, and my crime novel, Thorn in the Flesh and my gay comedy novel, Pink Champagne and Apple Juice, are available from them. Another of my novels, a gay crime thriller called A Dangerous Man, is also available from Flame Books. My latest poetry collection is A Stranger's Table, which includes poems about sex, furniture and boats. This can be found at Poetry Monthly Press. A further gay crime novel is due in 2008: Maloney's Law, which will be published by PD Publishing in the US. I'm represented by the John Jarrold Literary Agency.
