I write books. It’s what I do. In 2009 I published my first novel, Javascotia, with Hamish Hamilton, an imprint of Penguin UK.

It’s been a real struggle to get a second published–I won’t kid you. But I keep seeking agent representation, submitting manuscripts to presses, contests, and anywhere else that aligns with my style and aesthetic. I maintain hope of publishing again.

What I’ve found is that I still enjoy writing books, no matter the outcome. That feels like doing it for the right reason. So I’m playing the long game, trusting that the right publisher relationship will develop, and in time I’ll rap my knuckles on a hardback with one of my titles on the spine.
