Writing has been my crutch and my dream since the mere age of 13. It started as a hobby, fueled with a desire for books to bend to my visions; now it’s my life’s dream.
Born and raised in New Zealand, I have a number of sibling and a hoard of niblings (that’s the gender-neutral term for nieces and nephews!). I work part time, and study full time at Massey University; my bachelors is a double major in Creative Writing and Psychology, but once that’s under my belt I’m going for gold: Post-Graduate Diploma in Clinical Psychology. That’s right guys; this airy-fairy head-in-the-clouds gal is going to be a doctor one day.
I’m a serial hobbyist; that is to say, I enjoy reading, writing, sewing, art, yoga, dance, and probably half a dozen other things that are currently on the back-burner and don’t immediately spring to mind.
Ironically, as a child I refused to read. I wouldn’t go near a book – not until they were forced upon me in Intermediate, and the rest, as they say, is history. Since my discovery of the written word, I’ve spent my life spouting off about how I’m going to be an author. At 21, I’ve decided to get a little more serious about that goal.
