I am a Gibraltarian author and academic based in the North of England. I have written four novels – The Escape Artist, Solitude House, Jonathan Gallardo and Gooseman – as well as numerous stories, essays, articles and works of non-fiction. I lived on the Rock until the age of twenty-seven, when I moved to the UK to study English Literature. I subsequently took BA, MA and PhD degrees at the University of Leeds, completing my studies in 2004 with a thesis entitled 'Anti-Spanish sentiment in English literary and political writing, 1553-1603.' Since then I have lived mainly in the UK, but have also done stints in New Zealand (2004), India (2005-2008) and, more recently, Japan (2014-2016). Over the years I have talked about issues of Gibraltarian identity on radio progammes such as the BBC World Service's 'The Cultural Frontline', ABC Australia's 'Late Night Live' and Antena Caro's 'Lletres Ebrenques'. I have also spoken in front of audiences at the University of Salamanca, the University of Turin, the University of Basel, the University of the Balearic Islands , the University of Lisbon, the University of Portsmouth, the University of Northumbria, the University of Strasbourg, the University of Barcelona, the University of Gibraltar and other universities.
