Work with me

I am available for gigs as a writer, storyteller, musician, composer and workshop leader. This section covers the things I can do and the services I can provide. If you want to find out more, or would like me to get involved in your project or event, please get in touch.

Longer Stories

Below are themed sets of roughly 2 × 45mins in length (more or less – trimmed versions of 45 to 60 minutes are no problem) and all of these are available to tour and book. Further details on request. See here for some clips, and see the homepage and/or Forthcoming Events for future performances.

Teaching & Workshops

I am a lecturer in storytelling and creative writing at Derby University, and I run regular workshops with community groups, arts centres and local councils.

Work in Development

A tantalising glimpse of some of the projects I have in the pipeline.


I’m building up a collection of information and downloads here, which I hope is of use in marketing and publicity.
