I'm a writer, and occasional illustrator.
You can find details of my books, and other recent publications, plus events, above, and also on the right side-bar of my site.
I'm Fiction Editor at 3:AM Magazine.
I also run @read_women, for which I won Women In Publishing's 2014 New Venture Award.
I like to organise, and chair, literary events. I've done this for, amongst others, l'Insitut Francais, Port Eliot Festival, The Wellcome Institute, Peirene Press, The Southbank, The Cambridge Festival of Ideas, Shakespeare & Company Paris and the Melbourne Writers' Festival.
My illustration work has appeared worldwide in publications ranging from The Economist to the New York Times, Die Woche to Penguin Books. She has created large-scale artworks for the Tate Modern and The Wellcome Institute. London Walks!, a visual diary, was published by Tate in 2011.
This website was a Webby Honouree in 2008.
