I'm an aspiring novelist and short story writer based in the North-East of England.

My writing is mostly inspired by magical realist traditions, mixing my own experiences of the world with fairy tales, legends, and more fantastical beliefs.

A lot of my work is set in the North of England, where I grew up and have spent most of my life. However, I love to travel, and I try to include this sense of adventure and new experiences in my work.

I like to write about the things that inspire me: about imagination, about love, about hope, about dreams, about family.
