"I've grown up loving books, I've always had books around me. Mum read me stories from a young age, encouraged my imagination.
My personal interests including writing!!!, reading, drawing and miniature sculpture as well as wood work which I'm rubbish at!! I've loved writing since I was a child and I use literature as an escape, I don't have a genre, will give anything a go. I love cats, wolves, sloths unicorns and dragons!
I've kept many of my favourite childhood books including a crinkled copy of Mr Worry, he joined me in the paddling pool! Micheal Morpurgo was a dominant author during my primary years along with Judy Blume and Jill Murphy, I still have my Worst Witch books. As a teenager I read a myriad of authors from Stephen King to J.R.R Tolkien, got lost in Discworld and survived the perils of the Point Horror series. I've discovered the House of Night and Morganville , Stonewylde and Hogwarts, .......... the list goes on.
Books were, and still are, an escape from reality, a sanctuary, a place to lose yourself in the musings of another's imagination."
