I am a freelance writer, researcher, and academic currently working on a number of solo and collaborative projects. Ongoing work deals with Sylvia Plath and archival studies; examining the notion of the ‘living archive’; and ideas connected to the importance of place. I am researching and writing my current book, Kicking at the Door of Fame, a dual biography exploring the social rebellion of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexon. This will be published by Simon & Schuster in Spring 2021.
My first book, Sylvia Plath in Devon: A Year’s Turning, co-written with Elizabeth Sigmund was published by Fonthill Media in 2014. I have also published extensively on Plath in various journals and books, details of which can be found here.
My first solo authored book, The Haunted Reader and Sylvia Plath, was published in early 2017. A co-authored book with Peter K. Steinberg, These Ghostly Archives: The Unearthing of Sylvia Plath, was released in May 2017.
I divide my time between the North of England with my dog George, and London. As a feminist vegan I engage with politics concerning gender, power, and animal rights.
