Author has written 20 stories for General, Essay, Horror, Young Adult, and Biography.

A bit about me:

- I love books. The Book Thief is one of my favourites.

- I enjoy creative writing, but sometimes it takes me a long time for me to come up with something I like.

- Music is what keeps me going. I love my classical playlists!


I write a lot of academic essays. Many are published here but may have been written several months before I have them uploaded. I also post short stories on occasion.

I greatly appreciate the comments/compliments/constructive criticism. However, as stated above, many may have been written months before posting, so while I will always appreciate notes for improvement, there's a good chance that they will not be implemented because the pieces have already been submitted and graded for academic purposes.

My horror stories were originally written in collaboration with my friend and were written when we were twelve. I just copied and pasted what was already there. These can now be found as a story collection, Nightmares on the Street Corner.

I have a poetry anthology called Food for Thought, which will be updated sporadically. Poetry types will vary from chapter to chapter.
