If you’re a fan of magic, dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction, romance, adventure, superheroes, coffee, family, super random thoughts, and the odd inspirational post *stops to take a breath* then we sound like a good match!

Welcome to my blog 🙂

I write about things that interest me—often they are issues that crop up in my works in progress. These range from thoughts about romantic tropes, the immortal existence, and friendship in fiction, to more universal themes covering the human experience. I write about loneliness, about how to find joy, about resilience and facing fear. I explore these ideas from my own experience and perception, but hope they resonate with you too.

I am also a history teacher and the interconnectedness between history and identity and learning is important to me.

I try to mix up my posts so there are thoughts about writing, about tropes, about heroes, interspersed with the life lesson and self awareness posts.

Short Stories I’ve been writing more short stories and sharing them on the blog. One of my short stories has recently been published in the Flying Ketchup Press Tales from the Goldilocks Zone anthology! You can Purchase that here!

You can read more recent extracts of my work on the SNIPPETS page (found at the top in the Menu bar), or see an overview of my current Works in Progress HERE. If you would like to see some of the contest successes I have had this year you can find those HERE.

I hope you enjoy my posts as much as I enjoy writing them 🙂
