Writing is the only thing that, when I do it, I don't feel I should be doing something else.

Gloria Steinem


23. England. Write mainly for Romance or Young Adult.

I love to write but I'm not always the best (see Blue River). I started out on this website with a basic, predictable YA storyline which - in my head - has grown into something bigger. It's a little embarrassing to read over my 1000-ish word chapters in Blue River and it's also hard to see how poor my writing was but I keep it there because people seemed to respond well to the story I was telling and it's also good for comparison purposes.

Open Your Eyes is the story I feel the least attached to which I think shows towards the end. But it's the story which has garnered the most positive and constructive criticism. It's the age-old best friends in love story and with a little more elaboration in places it could be really good.

But Parachute Not Included is my current project and the one it seems I am taking forever to write. I am, but only because of life getting in the way. I know Darcie like the back of my hand and I want to tell her story well, to do it justice. I can't do this if I rush it. Thank you to everyone who has it on story alert. I know I'm terrible at updates but I've reconnected with Darcie's voice recently so hopefully updates will be a little more frequent. I will also be posting companion pieces and a 20k+ word sequel once it is over. I've created a little world around Darcie and Courtland that I have fallen in love with and I hope you will too.

I don't get to read as much as I used to but when I find stories I love, or ideas I like but need a little nudge - I always review. I appreciate the same courtesy being extended to me as reviews are the only way we can become better writers. We can often look at our work through rose-tinted glasses and it takes another person to point out the flaws before you can fix them.

Enjoy :)
