I was born in Inverness in 1983 and I live in Edinburgh.

My debut novel, Infinite Ground (‘jaw-dropping’ – The Times), won the Somerset Maugham Award and was shortlisted for the Saltire Awards.

My second novel, Gathering Evidence (‘beautiful’ – Guardian), led to my inclusion in the National Centre for Writing / British Councils’s list of ten writers shaping the UK’s future.

My third novel, In Ascension (‘I don’t think I’ve ever read a book that was as profound and moving at every scale – the cell, the family, the universe’ – Karen Joy Fowler) is published in February 2023.
