I am an independent spirit and adventurous heart, with a perfectionist streak that has given me more than a few grey hairs. Now that university is over I am looking to study in Paris, after which I plan to teach English around the world. When I’m not writing I’m wandering, or reading. Favourite genres include Fantasy, Russian literature, Historical fiction, and experimental non-fiction. My heroes are Niki Lauda and Arnold Schwarzenegger for their strength of character. Besides contributing to The Lighter Journal, I run my own website and am currently working on my first novel, a low fantasy epic.
