I am a writer living in Edinburgh, Scotland. I like to write about what I call the ‘murderous’ side of family life – the dark, the quirky and the strange.
In 2016 I was named an Amazon Rising Star for my debut novel, The Other Mrs Walker (Mantle/Pan Macmillan) about a woman who finds families for dead people.
I have an MLitt in Creative Writing from the University of Glasgow. I was awarded Glasgow’s inaugural Curtis Brown Prize for Fiction in 2009, the Maverick Award from the Tom McGrath Trust in 2011 and the Literature Works First Page Prize in 2013.
I am a Hawthornden and a Brownsbank Fellow and a member of writers collective 26.
