I am a writer. I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and have lived in several countries. Currently I'm based in the UK and the south west of Ireland. I live with my partner, David Crean and my foundling cat, Rónán.
I have over 40 short story and flash fiction publications, including in: World Literature Today, The Irish Times, Descant, AGNI, The Fiddlehead and others.
My work has received a number of awards including the 2012 bosque Fiction Competition and the 2011 J.G. Farrell award for best novel-in-progress, adjudicated by Gillian Slovo. I have been awarded Professional Writer’s Grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Arts Council of Ireland and Arts Council England. The novel I am working on, Ten Virtuous Acts, is a literary adventure set in Sri Lanka during the civil war.
I administer the In Memory of Vučko and AWABosnia websites, raising awareness and funds to stop animal suffering in Sarajevo and Bosnia-Herzegovina.
