I’m delighted to have been awarded a £5,000 grant from Creative Scotland to write my first ever novel.

I’ll be starting work on the novel in September and aim to have a first draft completed within a year. The novel will explore themes of queerness, escape, domestic abuse and coercive control.

I’m so delighted to have received this grant which will now help to give me the time and opportunity to commit to the research, planning and initial drafting of this book.
