I have loved writing from since I learned to hold a pencil. I came up with characters left right and centre and storylines have never stopped playing in my head. I am a 19-year-old home-school graduate born and mostly raised in South Africa but now living in Australia. I wrote Upbeats when I was 13 and submitted it in a national competition in 2012 for writers under 35. I have drafted a few more adventures of the Upbeats, Gamma Accidents and other similar novels which I intend to publish. I also enjoy playing acoustic guitar; dabbling in photography; sewing, drawing and painting; and exploring the woods around my house, where I base a lot of my stories in and around.
