It took me a while to get here, mostly because I figured no one would get my dated Stevie Nicks references or appreciate my obsession with muscle cars. But curiosity won out, and I now consider myself a full-on Wattpaddian.
I love the idea of sharing stories with other writers, both seasoned veterans of the craft as well as those just starting out. Writers are mostly a pretty supportive bunch and no matter what our level of wordsmithery, it's nice to have each other's backs.
Marmite, that quintessential British foodstuff we either love or hate, is probably my spirit animal. I am also a lover of quality socks, am a stupidly early riser, a shameless eavesdropper and a huge animal lover. I love authenticity, hate pretension, and will be the person at the party who hides out in the back yard and talks to the dog.
I've had a lot of different jobs over the years, the longest, a 13-year stint teaching high school art. Now I teach creative writing part-time, write reviews for BC Bookworld, and do some freelance editing on the side.
If you made it this far, thank you. If you didn't, I understand; I do tend to prattle on.
