She won the 2014 Dundee International Book Prize for her novel The Other Ida (Cargo), and her show The Islanders (which she wrote and performed in) won the Ideas Tap/Underbelly Fringe Fund and toured nationally. Her most recent show, Mass, deals with her relationship with faith, and her new show, Pepper’s Ghost, is in development with Bristol Old Vic.
