I am a Gibraltarian author based in the North of England. I have written six novels – The Escape Artist, Solitude House, Jonathan Gallardo, Gooseman, The Fetishist and Marlboro Man – as well as numerous stories, essays, articles and works of non-fiction. My novel Marlboro Man was published in an anglophone edition and another aimed at bilingual Llanito-Engliish readers. I lived on the Rock until the age of twenty-seven, when I moved to the UK to study English Literature. I 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 Cambridge, 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. I am an affiliate member of the Variation in English Worldwide (ViEW) team at the University of Vigo and an honorary member of the Associazione Italiana Studi Culture e Letterature di Lingua Inglese (AISCLI). I am currently helping to edit the volume Gibraltarians and their Language: Twenty-two Linguistic Biographies along with academic colleagues at the Universities of Vigo and the Balearic Islands.
