1. Tell us about you, and your writing (themes, influences etc.)
I was born in Staffordshire and was raised in Oxfordshire where I currently live. I work as a carer and have diplomas in Health & Social care and Art & Design. I love books – reading them, collecting them, and also writing them. I had my first poem published in an anthology when I was eight and kept going ever since.
2. What are some of the ways in which you promote your work, and do you find these add, or eat into, your time writing?
I promote my work through social media and also by attending writing meetups and sharing works with other writing groups. I don’t think it takes up too much time at all at the moment because it’s multitasking and I’m still writing as I go along.
3. What projects are you working on at present?
I am currently working on my second novel, a thriller called Fishman. Along the side I am also trying to complete 12 unfinished fan fics and a poetry book about gaming. I still write some poetry on a whim if I am inspired.
4. What does poetry mean to you?
Poetry is one of the best tools I can use to describe myself. It is liberating and culturally enriching.
