I was born in a small village in South Wales and for a short while worked as a Molecular Biologist. After falling asleep on a microscope, an incident that left me with red rings around my eyes for days, I realised that this career was not for me.

I turned to my true love — writing —working three jobs whilst studying to complete my Masters. My favourite job was in a traditional sweet shop because Sundays were quiet and I could write under the counter whilst sucking a sherbet lemon. Now I freelance for companies all over the country from my tiny cottage in South Wales and my days consist of copywriting and social media marketing.

I also work with writers to help them develop their author brand and social media presence. I reserve the night-time for make-believe worlds and gathering inspiration for my stories.

I have just finished my first novel, LIKE, and am in the throes of editing. I am looking to start work on my second novel. I also write short stories and performance poetry.

I have blonde hair that changes colour – this week it is pink – and an adorable dog called Ollie, two cats and a horse. My favourite thing to do when not writing is to go out for a long ride on my horse with Ollie-dog and escape into the Welsh wilderness.
