They call me Muuu-uuu-uum, missus, scientist, and writer. I live and write on a big wet rock overlooking the sea, where I alternate between writing scientific reports and fiction. I’m also interested in child literacy; I help with a children’s book review blog, and volunteer in primary school (mostly reading with children, PTA, and a 2016 library project).


My short fiction has been published in print and online.  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) to write short stories and flash fiction. I won a few prizes, had about 30 flash fictions published, and was shortlisted for the 2012 Bridport Prize (s/story), and longlisted for the 2012 Fish flash fiction prize and 2010 Fish short story prize. Details available on the short fiction page.


There’s a book on the way.
