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. My latest book, Three-Martini Afternoons at the Ritz, is a dual biography exploring the social rebellion of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton. This was published by Simon & Schuster, New York, in April 2021 and can be ordered here:

Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Bookshop | Books-a-Million | IndieBound | Simon & Schuster

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, These Ghostly Archives: The Unearthing of Sylvia Plath, was released in May 2017.
