About Me

readingMy short stories have appeared in a number of anthologies; including three volumes of The Mammoth Book of Best British Crime and Belfast Noir. I co-edited Requiems for the Departed, a collection of crime fiction based on Irish myths which won the 2011 Spinetingler Award for best anthology. My novella, The Point, was published by Pulp Press in October 2011 and won the 2012 Spinetingler Award for best novella. Wee Rockets, my debut novel, was published as an ebook by Blasted Heath in 2012. I graduated from the MA in creative writing at Queen’s University Belfast in 2012 and am currently working on a crime fiction-related PhD. My most recent novel is titled Undercover, and it was released by Blasted Heath in September 2014.
