Biography

I don't know what I'd do with myself if I didn't write!

I decided to try and write my first novel when I was 13, all with a notepad and a pen, 100 odd pages later I shared it with my Year Nine English teacher who encouraged me to continue although that story never got further than a pen and a notepad my second attempt at a novel "Choreography" got further, the idea was formed during a Year 10 Creative Writing Class and took around two years to complete and was my first published novel.

As I've grown up and matured as have my characters and their experiences. Every character I write goes through a development whether it's within themselves, within their life choices or within the people around him. So whether you want to join 14 year old Nathan as he discovers his sexuality and his talent, 16 year old Ryan as he manages to juggle a relationship whilst trying to win a competition or even 24 year old Kevin who starts to realise how much fun a relationship can be, you'll find something within all of them that makes you want to cheer them on and let them come out on top (In life, not always in the bedroom!)

I tend to write more LGBT fiction and romance with the occasional paranormal story thrown in, they range from 50 to 400 pages and all have little connections that some people may not notice the first time!
