I was born in 1987 in Stevenage, Hertfordshire where I still live now with my partner Leon and our three beautiful children Ollie, Scarlett and Maia. I grew up as the youngest of five kids in a family of creative and emotional people, surrounded by music, art and words. Stories and poetry were forever being written, spoken or sung by our parents and writing and creativity became important to me from a young age. I became a mother at age seventeen and spent some years as a single parent working as a waitress and studying an access course which enabled me to get into university. I studied Writing and English literature and graduated in 2014. I took some time out to spend with my family but plan to begin teacher training this September. I write mostly short fiction and children’s stories and poetry.
