21 years old.
Winter baby born and raised on a sunny little island in the south of England. Currently residing on the ‘mainland’ in a city called Winchester.
Soon-to-be graduate of the University of Winchester, predicted to graduate in October with a 2:1 BA(Hons) degree in Creative Writing.
Contributor to award-winning site ‘The Book, The Film, The T-Shirt‘ for two years, reviewing film adaptations, hot new books and TV shows.
Dedicated editor for the charity ‘Seeing Ear‘. Since joining the company in August 2016, I have edited seven full length novels into the flexible style to transfer the text into Braille.
Avid film watcher, book reader and tea drinker. I’ve been known to fangirl to the point of attending film premieres to meet the stars (received an invitation to watch the world premiere of Love, Rosie because of this dedication).
My goal is to become an editor in a publishing house to allow time to write my own YA novels on the side. If you were to ask me what my dream company to be a part of was, I would probably ramble on about HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster or Penguin Random House… to name a few ‘small’ ones.
Currently half-way through two different YA novels:
- Infiltrator: a dystopian England where the government removes members of the public who won’t conform to their rules
- The Veiled Descendants: a fantasy where mystical and supernatural creatures are forced into an academy to ensure their powers never manifest into forces of evil.
My dissertation is also a YA novel which covers the genre of magic realism. This story focuses on modern slavery in a world where humans have enslaved fairies for their own selfish whims. It is an intended piece of 60k words and is told from three different points of view (the protagonist, the sidekick, and the antagonist).
