Welcome

Hello everyone! On my blog you can find articles about folklore, writing and fairy tales. Visit the about section if you would like to know more about me and my work or scroll down for trailers and my latest blog posts. Thank you for visiting!

It has been a huge honour and an amazing experience to work together with The Alternative Stories and Fake Realties Podcast on several projects.

In Scottish folklore a selkie is a being that can shapeshift from seal to human. My audiodrama Selkie is based on this and tells the story of a selkie who is forced to live her life on land and cannot return to the sea. You can view the trailer below and listen to the episode here.

‘The Fairy Tree’ tells the story of a girl who is transformed into a tree. It is part of an anthology about forests and woodlands and you can listen to the piece here.

Read my short story ‘Women’s March on Versailles’ in The Copperfield Review.

You can support me on Ko-fi here. Donations will not be used to buy coffee but to purchase research materials, submit short stories to literary magazines and make sure that I can update my blog with fresh content.
