I write female-centric (and sometimes all-female) work, in a variety of mediums, that seeks to tell stories of people who are often marginalised in mainstream media. Special interests include gender, feminism, GLBT issues, and mental health. I am also a comedy writer and comedian (sketch and improv) and some kind of comedy, albeit usually dark or satirical, runs through much of my work.
