Although I was born in the United Kingdom I am for all intents and purposes a Kiwi as my family immigrated to New Zealand shortly after my first birthday and we have been here ever since.
Growing up I had a wonderful childhood full of imaginative play and make-believe worlds and, to be perfectly honest, nothing much has changed. I drink in the heroines of Studio Ghibli and lap up the imaginative worlds of C. S. Lewis, and I revel in the complexities of J. R. Tolkien and Fuyumi Ono.
I did not study writing or literature, however I have been telling stories in one medium or another ever since I was a child. With a background in the Performing Arts and Disability Studies, and with varying degrees of Dyslexia I have my own way of telling stories which I will continue to hone as my focus shifts to the medium of the written word.
