Author has written 7 stories for Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Supernatural, Romance, and General.

I’m from Wiltshire, UK. I have many hobbies including writing, roller-blading and reading. I write YA stories, usually with a mix of genre's (sci-fi, fantasy, romance) and would love it if you'd read my work. Someday I want to take a long ‘writers retreat’ to Lille in France and am learning French to prepare. So far 10 French words have been learnt but I’ve bought a textbook so it is in progress. My favourite books include 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin' by Louis de Bernieres, the entire of the 'Demonata' and 'Cirque du Freak' series by Darren Shan, the 'Harry Potter' series by JK Rowling (the chamber of secrets most of all!) and 'The Clan of the Cave Bear' by Jean M Auel (I have yet to read past the third book in the series, 'The Mammoth Hunters', but I do love the series so far). I also like comics and manga.

Just wanted to add my beautiful betas to this page. The lovely people that now read my raw chapters are:
HoldMeTogether, Lazerkat & Doylex2 so check them out! All of them are wonderful people and brilliant writers that pick away at the bad grammar in the stories they choose to beta.

I am currently not accepting Beta requests.
