Hello there dear viewer,
You’ve reached this page because you are either intrigued about who I am and how I write or just plain nosy. Either way, here is a little bit about me and my writing journey, which is still going and I hope will continue for some time.
Firstly, I’ll start with the boring bits. Started writing poems when I was younger. Won a poetry competition in Flordia, USA when I was 9/10 and wasn’t allowed to go, for obvious reasons. (I live in the UK- bit far and bit expensive). So my dreams started off badly.
I then turned my attention to writing novels when I was about 16/17 but my novels got scuppered when my computer contracted a virus and wiped everything. You’d think by now I would have thought the universe is screaming out, “Abi don’t write!” but when I got into university I had already finished my very first book, a fan fiction of Avatar: The Last Airbender.
As sad as that is, I was chuffed to bits with the little bugger. It took me a year and I’d never felt so elated! But that’s when I got the writing bug and by the 2nd year of uni, I was already thinking that perhaps Archaeology wasn’t my chosen path. And so while I was studying during the day, by night, I was writing. And after a few short months my first sci-fi story “Being” was born.
By the time I was in my 1st year of my Masters studying Social Archaeology, I had written 4 more books. The Night Lord series. I then took up a course in Creative Writing in Exeter, Devon and during the end of 2009, beginning of 2010 I created my favourite book, Tattoo of the Black Angel. During 2010-2012, I had written a further 8 more books, won a writing competition, gained a literary agent and a publisher. And I owe my writing drive to the wonderful site that is Wattpad.com
My first published book is “Loving In Time” (please head on over to My Books for further details). And my latest book to be published this August is “Tattoo of the Black Angel” finally after 5 years from start to finish, editing, re-editing, re-re editing, losing my agent, giving up finding another agent and forking out thousands for editing + book cover + book trailer, I can finally smile and know that the book will be out. And I will continue writing and continue publishing my books in the up-coming years.
