The editor announced her as “a writer who is going places” and described the story as having “both a Sci- and horror element,” and being “strong on characterisation, and literary, in terms of style.” Subsequently, she to write all reports and publicity material, including a piece for translation into Braille for The Nursery and Arthritis Care Breaking Down the Barriers garden project, which took place at the Malvern Spring Show.

Since then, her work has appeared steadily in both print and electronic publications, such as Midnight Street, Aoife’s Kiss (Sam’s Dot Publishing), Night To Dawn, and (). Her short story — Bitter and Intoxicating — up in the anthology Red Velvet and Absinthe.
