If you’re still reading *waves*, nice to have you here!

About Me: I am a writer. My main genre is Fantasy but sometimes I go with what comes out of the ink, never from my head. I have been writing since I was 13/14 and haven’t stopped since. (Apart from eating, sleeping and that kind of thing). Right now I am aiming to finish my third draft of my novel but I have been struggling with anxiety/depression for some time and it has taken its toll on my creative ability.

Blog Contents: The main themes I will be concentrating on are as follows;

Fantasy – I will be relating to this through plots and situations that are included in my novel.

Mythology- It wouldn’t be mine otherwise without this topic. I’ll be focusing on Greek in particular as that’s my passion and to also turn all of what you know into something new.

Family – Because at the end of the day everybody has one and needs to be included.

Mental Health Issues – This is another issue I’m passionate about, being a sufferer myself it would be odd not to be. I’ll be writing about how it affects my life in general, some similarities with my characters and other bits of useful (I hope) information.

And if you’re really, really lucky, some excerpts of my writing. Time will tell whether this will happen though.

Blog Aim:

  • To provide insight into my day to day life.
  • To inform and arouse interest in fantasy.
  • To encourage people to discuss these topics freely.
  • To entertain all of you, my followers and make just one, if not all of you smile.

I’m going to bid you adieu as I’m probably babbling waaayyy too much now. Hope you have enjoyed reading, please feel free to follow and spread the word.

    Thanks for the follow and link on yr homepage. I almost feel famous 😉 I look forward to reading yr posts on fantasy. I have a list of recommended fantasy writers I am working my way through. Right now on Glenn Cook’s The Black Company with such wonderful quotes as ‘fortune is a fickle bitch’. In case u r ever in Berlin, go to bookstore Another Country. It has the largest collection of Eng Lang sci-fi in Europe. The owner is very lovely and knowledgable.
