I've been writing young adult fiction for a little over ten years.
I was fourteen when I wrote my first novel. After I finished the first manuscript ideas just kept coming. I was writing every chance I could get. When I finished High School I completed a Diploma of Creative Writing, it helped me realise that being an author is a dream I couldn't possibly give up. I now have at least thirty story ideas laying in wait, I'll get through them all, one day!
I write in an unconventional way...
I do 99% of my writing from the comfort of my bed. It's probably not the most ergonomic option, but I'm most inspired when I'm comfortable.
My bed is a combination of pink and grey blankets and throw cushions. I currently have eleven cushions and five blankets on my bed. It makes for the cosiest writing quarters!
These are a few of my favourite things:
Childhood book: The Very Hungry Caterpillar
Authors: Cathy Glass, Jodi Picoult & James Marsden
Fictional series: The Tomorrow Series
Fictional character: Ellie Linton of The Tomorrow Series
Harry Potter book: The Order of the Phoenix
Harry Potter characters: Snape, Hagrid, Molly & Neville
Music: Taylor Swift, Miguel, Shawn Mendes, INXS

Food: Chocolate, pasta & pizza
Season: Spring or Autumn
The most interesting thing about me...
I can thank my father and grandfather for giving me my best party trick; my colourblindness.
The form of colourblindness I have is called strong protanopia.
Most colours are hard for me to identify. My colour vision is dependent on lighting, my mood and how tired I am.
Only 0.6% of the female population is colourblind, which makes me a rare specimen!
