Journalist, novelist and all around word spinner and yarn teller I’ve written for everyone from the Financial Times and The Guardian to New York Magazine, Salon and Wired. I did the MA in creative writing at the University of East Anglia, and no matter what I’m scribbling I think everyone has stories to tell whether they’re about people or things or companies. Behind them are human tales about what we long to be. Or, want people to see us being. That’s where I come in. I like telling stories. I like longing. It’s compelling and tells us something essential about who we are and how we came to be. Like in Our Greater Selves my novel about high-end art theft set in Washington DC. The novel grew grew out of a story that was a finalist for Glimmer Train’s short story award for new writers, while my story “As If I Could Assume Your Life” was published in the British collection X-24 Unclassified along with ones by Daniel Alarcón, Leila Lalami and Clare Wigfall.
