About Me

I was born in Hitchin, Hertfordshire, but grew up in nearby Knebworth throughout the 1980s and ’90s. I went to school in Hitchin but found it a highly unpleasant and oppressive experience, so I left as soon as I could to study media production at college. This lead to seven years in the media industry as a writer, video editor, camera operator, director, producer etc. etc. for low budget productions, but at the tender age of 26 I decided to return to university and focus on my creative writing skills, as it is in writing that my biggest passion lies… well, writing and shoes.

Yes I am also a shoe fiend, perpetually skint shopaholic, sci-fi nut, fantasy freak, foodie, cat lady and posery camera whore…

I am also, as you may have guessed from my writing, Transgender. I began my transition from male to female in 2011 and officially changed my name in March 2013. I try to take as active and supportive a role in the Trans and LGBT communities, because I believe we should all strive to make the world better where we can.

I keep my blog up to date as much as possible, while I am also working on the scripts for a six part TV drama series, and finally getting around to the fourth and final draft of the first book in my epic horror/fantasy saga.

I now live in Nottingham, where I moved to from Leicester. It was in Leicester I read Creative Writing with Media & Communication at DeMontfort University, graduating in the Summer of 2012. I drive a cute little Citroen and can’t go more than a few weeks without making my hair go a different colour.

If you want to know more, feel free to ask.

  1. What colour is your hair this week? 🙂 Mine is my natural brown right now, but in the past I’ve dyed it red, orange and purple 🙂 I have a friend who dyed her hair bluey green, and it looked lovely 🙂 ❤
    Congratulations on your epic horror/fantasy, I'd love to read it when it's finished 😀 I love scary stories 🙂
