I am the author of a novel, My Name is Monster (Canongate, 2019), and two poetry pamphlets: Breaking the Surface (flipped eye, 2017), and Assembly Instructions (Southword, 2019), which won the 2019 Munster Chapbook Prize. My debut poetry collection, White Ghosts, is due from Nine Arches in March 2023.
