I am a writer of historical, fantasy, and speculative genres. Embracing nature and a little darkness in stories that focus on characters and the internal journeys they take in their stories. When I'm not writing, or working at my day job, I can be found day-dreaming of mythical creatures hiding in ordinary places, visiting historical sites across the UK, reading the many books hoarded around my house, and rocking out in pajamas!

Favourite Quote:
'The only writer to whom you should compare yourself is the writer you were yesterday.' - David Schlosser
