Welcome to my website! You can find out more information about my novels, non-fiction books, journalism and presenting here.

On my blog you’ll find out what I’m up to and tips for writing. Comments welcome!

I’ve written about the thorny problem of dialogue and some thoughts on crafting your own…plus the dialogue problem I struggled with writing Sugar Island.

I’ll be judging the Bristol Short Story Prize soon (get cracking – the deadline is fast approaching!) and BSSP has interviewed me here.


All the best,

sanjida o'connell
