Novel: The Complications of Overfishing
I am currently working on a novel about a woman who fishes bodies out of the sea. I am still in the depths of a first draft but I hope to reach the finishing line with this novel. The first three pages were short listed in a competition.
Short Stories: Various
I am currently working on a few short stories at the moment. One day I would like to put together a short story collection.
Novel: Reasons for Realism
For the past four years I have been working on a novel called Reasons for Realism. Not my first one and hopefully not the last one. But this one made it to the finishing line, unlike my other attempts.With Reasons for Realism, I have tried to write an accessible literary novel with a dystopian element. The chapters alternate between two strong female lead characters. The novel will appeal to fans who like literary dystopian novels like George Orwell's 1984, Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale, Liz Jensen's Rapture and Jeanette Winterson's The Stone Gods. I have decided to step away from the novel after many rounds of editing, redrafting, rejections and near misses with agents.
