Fiction Writer


I am a fiction writer who is experimenting abundance or deprivation of basic human needs on close human relationships. The interactions between my characters are the manifestations of the balance of needs at the individual as opposed to societal level.  

Recently I am carrying out a literary project called ‘Crime Fiction – Today and Yester Years’. I was awarded a bursary for this project by Literature Wales as part of the Platforming Under-represented Writers Funding Scheme. The project aims to encourage talented writers from under-represented backgrounds to develop their professional and artistic potential, and to create opportunities to advance their literary career. Please click here to learn about my project. I am active member of the Cardiff Literary Circle, which is a project by the charity, KIRAN.
