The first story I remember writing was at the age of about seven - it was entitled 'Morning Chorus' and started on a day when the birds suddenly stopped singing. I never found out why that event occurred, but many short stories, school projects and draft novels later, I decided to seriously pursue my love of writing.
Born in South West Devon in 1992, I grew up with a voracious appetite for books and a love of English. In 2013 I graduated from York University with a degree in English Language and Linguistics, and now (with several house moves in between!) work as a primary school teacher in Bristol alongside writing.
