Well. There's a question.
One that I have asked myself many, many times. As I sat at my dining room table revising for my school exams. As I walked into my first proper job. As I lay awake at night wondering whether I was gay, bi or just going through a 'phase'. (Hint: it wasn't the latter.) But writing has been my constant companion throughout. Whenever I didn't want to think about it, I just turned to my laptop - or my pen and paper, glitzy notepad or the Notes section of my phone - and immersed myself in whatever I was writing at the time. Throughout most of my teenage years, that was The Silent Chapter, my debut historical fiction novel. Then, as I entered early adulthood, my focus moved to The Summer We've Had, a modern-day piece of Sapphic fiction which features a character with Dissociative Identity Disorder.
I published them in 2022 and 2023, respectively, and they are both available now. Both vastly different books, but both of which have been well-received and have shaped me as an individual.
