I’m delighted to announce that I’ve signed a 2-book deal with Lume Books. The first book in the series and my debut novel, Murder à la Mode, will be published in November 2023. It features Lady Pamela More, a socialite-turned-spy tasked with trailing Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson in the murky world of espionage and fascism in 1930s London.

I recently directed Karina Weidman’s short film No Caller for The Machine, which will be released in the spring of 2023.

I am a 2021-2023 Associate Research Fellow at the Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre with my collaborator Katharina Reinthaller where we will create our new performance installation project ‘Mary/Marianne’, incorporating text, performance, video, audio and immersive technology. This piece will be inspired by the lives and work of Mary Wollstonecraft and Marianne Faithfull and focus on the ways in which women artists are censored and silenced, historically and today. We wrote a blog about the project for the National Centre for Academic and Cultural Exchange, which you can read here.
