I write and advocate for social justice and equality, focusing on race, sexuality, mental health, homelessness, and housing. I began writing with a blog ‘Max News’ followed by opinion pieces for newspapers and magazines including, the Independent and the Guardian and appeared on television and radio for the BBC and Sky News. I served as a detective with both the Greater Manchester Police and London’s Metropolitan Police. Granta published my debut book Forced Out about my time on the Force for which I was awarded an MBE for services to diversity through literature in the Queen’s birthday honours and shortlisted for the Polari Prize. I hold a Master’s in Writing from Regent’s University and am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts
