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 am a big fan of writers 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. As for you readers out there? You guys are the bee's knees. 🐝

I love stories about imperfect people. Realistic fiction is my jam.

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 somewhere and talks to the dog.

I've had lots of jobs over the years, the longest, a 13-year stint teaching high school art. Now I teach creative writing part-time, pen occasional reviews for BC Bookworld, and enjoy freelance editing on the side (mostly developmental and line editing of works of fiction. #YA is my speciality. You can check my website if you're interested.) Oh yes; I still like to paint.

If you made it this far, thank you. If you didn't, I understand; I do tend to prattle on.
