Fun fact: My middle name, Iles, was my grandma’s maiden name. It’s pronounced like “aisles” and “isles”.
The English language is weird.
Anyway! I’m a 27 year old musician, among other things, but I’ve always loved to write and tell stories. My dad is a novelist, playwright and screenwriter, so I suppose it’s in the blood. He keeps a very embarrassing file of mementos from my childhood, and this is why I know I was attempting to write romance novels before I actually knew what romance was. In second grade I wrote a short story about two characters from a children’s book falling in love and getting married. Does that mean it was fanfiction?! Oh dear.
I’m pleased to report that my writing has improved since then (um, in my opinion). My first self-published novel, One Night Standoff, is available now wherever eBooks are sold!
