The title poem of her first collection, Bowl (Worple, 2006), was a Poem on the Underground in 2008. Her fiction Achilles (Methuen 2001) has had a performance life: it won a Fringe First at Edinburgh and has been performed at the RNT’s Cottesloe Theatre as well as at various festivals (including Cheltenham!). She wrote the libretto of Francis Grier's The Passion of Jesus of Nazareth (broadcast live on radio 3 on Good Friday 2007) and has recently collaborated with him again on a vespers setting.

She was brought up in Nigeria and Dorset and now lives in London, where she works in complementary medicine, and East Anglia, where she writes.
