I have been writing my entire life. When I was a baby my mum would make up stories for me, when I could talk we would make them up together and have fun making our own books and as soon as I starting learning to write I was off! I would write my own stories and when I had writers block (I'm not sure six year olds get writers block - I imagine I was probably being a bit lazy) I would copy out my favourite books. I was learning with each story, original or copied.
When I hit my late teens, true writers block set in. I had spent my early teens with my head happily buried in vampire books but as I grew older I wanted more. I wanted something a bit different. I remember sitting and staring at a blank screen. I had lost my way. Then a film came out at the cinema that changed everything.
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring showed me a whole new world of fantasy and set my imagination running. I was back writing.
It took me a few more years to figure out what type of stories I enjoyed writing. I read of a lot of books around the fantasy, horror, sci-fi and woman's literature genres and now, ten years later I have found my voice and found my genre.
In 2011 I completed the manuscript of my first novel, in 2012 I completed a second novel, 'Matter of Time', and I'm now working on editing the hell out of these manuscripts as well as working on some smaller projects.
