They call me Muuu-uuu-uum, missus, scientist, and writer. I live and write on a big wet rock overlooking the Atlantic, where I write fiction. I’m interested in child literacy; for 12 years (2007 to 2019) I volunteered in primary school (mostly reading with children aged 5-10y, PTA, and a 2016 library project).
Shortlists include the Bare Fiction Prize (2017, flash), Bath Flash Fiction Award (Oct 2016), Bridport Prize (2015, s/story), and HISSAC short story competition (2013). Longlists include the Bristol Short Story Prize (2013) and Flash 500 competition (July 2014).
From 2009 to 2012 I used a pen name, Martha Williams. I won a few prizes and had about 30 flash fictions published. Also shortlisted for the 2012 Bridport Prize (s/story), and longlisted for the 2012 Fish flash fiction prize and 2010 Fish short story prize.
There’s a book on the way.

I enjoyed filter reading for the Glass Woman Prize (8th, 9th, and 10th — 2010/11) and Flash-Fiction South West (2012).
This is where I wear pyjamas, rant and spit.
