I’m an author and actor who lives in London. My first novel, Homo Jihad, was published in 2010 by Paradise Press and shortlisted for the Polari First Book Prize. I have a Master’s Degree in Creative Writing from Birkbeck, University of London (2012) and my short story, Bright Fire of Morning, is included in an anthology of short stories in The Mechanics Institute Review 8. My new novel, Pharmakeia, a queer reworking of the Faustian legend, was launched at Gay’s The Word bookshop in Bloomsbury in 2016. I am currently working on a memoir and have recently started to blog for Huffington Post.
