Summary:

I have been writing my whole life, I like all kinds of writing that allow me to use my creativity to make something new and interesting. I enjoy writing poetry, including lyrics to be put to music and some that I bring to the stage as performance poetry. I have written a number of short stories and been developing various novel ideas. My favourite genre is Science Fiction and Fantasy. I am currently working on my first novel called “Dawn of the Dark Fairy” which I hope to make the first of a fantasy series, I am also working on a few other novel ideas which I may try to publish under a pen name. I have also written short plays that have been used in children’s work and since I’ve been at university, I have written other short stage plays and some screenplays too. I have written a 10 minute horror film script called “The Cord” which I would like to get made if the opportunity presented itself. I am now in my final year of my BA(Hons) in Creative Writing.
