Hi everyone! So you want to know more – fab! I am a young adult author and I write fast-paced grounded science-fiction, light/urban fantasy and issue-based novels concerning anxiety, depression and learning difficulties.
I have completed a Curtis Brown Writing Course for children and loved every minute of it. I have also completed the Writer’s Bureau short story and novel writing course as well as Aaron Sorkin’s master class and the fab Writers HQ Plotstormers 1 & II course. I have been shortlisted for both Peerpitch 1 & 2 hosted by the lovely Scribblers. I have been long listed for the New Voices Award by New Adventures in Fiction and long and short listed in a handful of other places. I am a member of SCBWI and The Golden Egg Academy. I am also a mentor for Stuart White’s Write Mentor programme based in the UK.
I am represented by Yasmin Standen For The Unadjusteds Trilogy only.
Going back further I completed a psychology degree at Royal Holloway University of London and like to think this helps with my writing.
Other places you can find me are on a YouTube author video with Stuart White who is the creator of the WriteMentor programme for which I am a very proud mentor.
