Hello! I’m Canadian, but have lived in the UK for almost twenty years. My first name is Irish Gaelic and I pronounce it ‘Downith’ (a more detailed explanation is available for a small fee.) My debut novel ‘New Girl in Little Cove’ will be published by Harper Collins Canada & Graydon House Books (US) in early 2021 and I’m currently working on a second novel. I’m delighted to be represented by the wonderful Hilary McMahon, literary agent at Westwood Creative Artists.
My flash fiction is widely published and anthologised, has been nominated for Best Small Fictions and Best MicroFiction and is listed in the Best British and Irish Flash Fiction 2018-19. I also write creative non-fiction and short stories, and have twice been nominated for a Pushcart Prize.
