I'm a PGR who has also gone through LJMU's English and Creative Writing undergrad and MA. I'm an aspiring author whose main focus is Fantasy/Sci-Fi and I'm currently trying to find an agent for my first duology. I'm also hoping to become a Creative Writing lecturer/tutor in the future as, while I'd love to live off my writing, I'm also well aware that doesn't often happen, especially overnight. Lecturing would let me work in a field I love while hopefully encouraging others to pursue their passions.

I was a finalist in the 2016 Pulp Idol competition, so the first chapter of my first book, Z'kani, is officially in print in their Pulp Idol Firsts: 10th Anniversary Edition. I also practice kendo/Japanese sword fighting with the Liverpol Kendo Club, over at the IM Marsh campus.
