Academic Papers

Before I was a novelist I worked in Child Protection and as a pyschotherapst. Writing was involved in both the study and practice of this work, though it was very different from my work as a novelist. Here’s some examples of my academic writing. With the frequent references to films and care work, you can see how my career and my artistic inclinations were always close.
