I’m a novelist and short story writer from Edinburgh. My first collection of short stories, The Way Out, is published by Freight Books. It’s available online direct from Freight, or from Amazon, and in the physical world from bookshops. Go to the Shorts page for links to reviews.

The Way Out was long-listed for the Frank O’Connor International Short Story Award 2015, the Jerwood Fiction Uncovered Prize 2015, and the Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2016.

The_Way_Out‘The stories in The Way Out are warm yet chilling, barbed but sensuous, gruesome then tender, funny and wistful. In her fairytale-like accounts of men, women, children and arseholes, Jarrett serves up a platter of dilemmas, desires and disappointments – occasionally with a big dollop of mustard on the side. This is a collection full of style and control.’
Anneliese Mackintosh, author of Any Other Mouth

‘There is heart here… a very impressive collection’
Rodge Glass, author of Bring Me the Head of Ryan Giggs and LoveSexTravelMusik
