My Story

(it's a work in progress)

My love of writing started in primary school, where I enjoyed using my imagination in creative pieces. I started writing in my free time, on a second-hand laptop with no internet for distraction. 


Starting in the fantasy genre, I read and wrote paranormal romance, which was so popular, before expanding into mythology-based fantasy pulling from my Celtic heritage.


My love for science fiction started much later, in my Creative Writing BA in Bath Spa University, when I read The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury. Since, my collection of space non-fiction books and sci-fi novels has grown exponentially. 

I moved to Manchester and started a Creative Writing MA at the University of Manchester, where I explored both my mythology-based fantasy and science fiction novels. 

While the plan was to have some time away from study, I found myself applying for a PhD within a month of graduating from my Masters course. I was accepted onto a Creative Writing PhD at the University of Liverpool, starting October 2022, where I will be exploring the representation of AI within science fiction, and writing a novel exploring those themes. 

My goals are to graduate my PhD with a path forward to becoming a published writer, and hopefully a career in academia at one of my alumni universities, where I can write, research and teach my knowledge to aspiring writers. 

My work can currently be found in the University of Manchester 2020 Anthology, Many; and the University of Liverpool 2023 Department of English Anthology,  These Starving Bones of Mine
