I’m an award-winning British writer interested in travel, religion, mental health and the places where they meet.


In 2013 I walked from Canterbury to Jerusalem. My first book, The Crossway (Picador, 2018), was an account of this journey. It was a BBC Book of the Week and shortlisted for several prizes. My second, The World Within (Simon and Schuster, 2025), looks at the role of retreat in creative lives.


I review for the Financial Times, the Spectator and the Times Literary Supplement, and have contributed to numerous radio shows and podcasts. I have also taught creative writing workshops and masterclasses at Arvon, Gladstone’s Library and elsewhere.


After studying English Literature at Cambridge University, I worked in politics and journalism. I now freelance as an editor, copywriter and ghostwriter for commercial clients and NGOs.

My agent is Zoë Waldie at Rogers, Coleridge and White. I can be contacted here
