I was born in Rio de Janeiro and raised in London. After university I worked as a journalist for several years, mostly at the Independent on Sunday. My first novel, Flesh and Bone and Water, was published in 2017 by Viking (UK) and Scribner (North America). I have an MA in Creative & Life Writing from Goldsmiths, where I won the Pat Kavanagh Award.

My second novel, Everything You Ever Wanted, will be published in the UK by Viking in 2019.

My agent is Emma Paterson at Aitken Alexander.
