Author has written 6 stories for Fantasy, Action, General, Life, Love, and Supernatural.
I absolutely love writing…it’s almost like a drug I’m addicted to. To me there is nothing better than getting absolutely drawn into a story at one o’clock and staying there until five. I adore being wrapped up in creating the next scenes for my characters, making exits and entrances from the building blocks of words and images, unlocking the box of my imagination and letting the blank white page drown in a sea of black type.

I’d like to say thanks to everyone who’s taken the time and effort to review my work. Your contributions are vitally important to me and I appreciate all your comments and opinions about my writing, good and bad – it’s lovely to feel wanted, and if I didn’t get something particularly right I’ll try and improve it next time.

A bit about me: I'm 18 years old and I live in north-west England. I have short brown hair, blue-green eyes, about 5'2", kinda skater/surfer-girl-meets-rock-chick style. My hobbies (apart from writing) are reading, playing guitar and drums, tae kwon do, listening to music, watching movies and hanging out with friends. After I finish university my ambition is to be a novelist or work for a magazine.

Favourite books: Lord Of The Rings, The Catcher In The Rye, To Kill A Mockingbird, The Color Purple
Favourite movies: Back To The Future, Indiana Jones trilogy, Donnie Darko, Reservoir Dogs
Favourite music: Good Charlotte, The Clash, The Beatles, Green Day, 5.6.7.8s, Maroon 5, The Strokes, Jet, Keane, The Killers, Snow Patrol, No Doubt, Liz Phair, Red Hot Chili Peppers and lots of others

Bibliography (NB Love Letters,A Pirate's Life For Me and Pink Daisy are in the process of being written. The rest are just ideas at the moment):
* A Pirate's Life For Me: Adventure/romance on the high seas
* Pink Daisy: My collection of poems which I add to on a fairly regular basis
* The Thirteenth Heir: Reworking of my original version; a LotR-esque fantasy adventure romance
* The Rainbow Amulets: Ancient Egypt-set fantasy adventure
* Cutthroat Kate: The sequel to A Pirate's Life For Me
* Xedart: Futuristic romantic drama (think Romeo and Juliet set in the world of The Matrix). A sequel and prequel to this are in the planning stages.
