Born in Portadown, Northern Ireland, I have made my home in Turkey, Poland, Italy, South Korea, the United States, Spain, and the United Kingdom – experiences that inform my nomadic surrealist writing. My writing has been translated into Danish and Polish, featured in the Best British Poetry series and has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best Microfiction, and Best of the Net. My essays, stories, poems, and reviews have appeared in various anthologies and magazines in Europe and North America, including Tin House, Fence, 3:AM, Sprung Formal, Rain Taxi, Poetry, and Versopolis Review. I have performed my work at various festivals and art galleries in Prague, Madrid, London, Bristol, Manchester, North Carolina, and Ireland. Currently, I live in Castelldefels, Spain and teach high school literature in Barcelona. My latest book is The Green Monk (Boiler House Press). Never Mind the Beasts, a third person autofiction novel, is forthcoming from Dostoyevsky Wannabe in May 2020.
