My adventure into writing began back when I was just seven years old. The set up would be in the dining room with me and my brother at the table. He would be drawing wars and dinosaurs whilst I would be writing stories.
Even though I was too young to have a plan for the future, writing was the least likely option for me – being a child that needed speech therapy and extra support with writing and spelling, I was never considered to be a child that might enjoy writing.
My passion for writing lopsided slightly as school life took over, but once I completed my GCSE’s, I was able to show off my flair for writing in College. The A-Level subjects English Language and Film Studies encouraged me to write more and to continue a journey into further education.

Since becoming a self-published author in the UK using CreateSpace, I have written and self-published four novels and a short story; all of which are available on Amazon, Waterstones, WHSmith, Barnes & Noble and many other leading bookstores.
I have many book ideas yet and I will continue to write!
