About Me

I'm an aspiring author living in London with my boyfriend and pet fish! I have lived in Vancouver, Sydney and New York for brief periods so these cities hold a special place in my heart. I went travelling for a year and absolutely loved it. There's a Tuesday I never had when I crossed the date line and as a consequence I had a very long Friday when I crossed back! I sometimes wonder where that lost Tuesday went. 

I work '9 to 5' for a living, as Dolly Parton would sing, and in my spare time I keep fish, run, hang out with friends and watch as many superhero movies and cheesy supernatural TV shows as is possible. I also write too, of course! I've always wanted to be a writer. I cannot remember how old I was when I wrote my first story, but I remember it was called 'Smoke the Baby Dragon'. It wasn't a gripping read, but I've learned a lot since then! 

I write YA at the moment, but read everything. I'm slowly editing a novel while starting a new idea. I love to talk about writing so please comment/follow/tweet if you'd like!
