I'm nervous and excited, and I really can't wait! This is such a wonderful opportunity, that I am really grateful for :)
I was born in Inverness, but I have lived most of my life in Ellon. I graduated with an honours degree in Zoology from the University of Aberdeen in 2004, and to write for a living has been a dream all of my life. I've written stories since I was young and have completed two Open University courses, Creative Writing in 2009/10, and Advanced Creative Writing in 2010/11. I write poetry regularly and often read it out at poetry evenings, at 'Better Read Books' Ellon. My first poetry book, 'Can't Talk, Can Think, Can Write!', was published in December 2011, and I have also had pieces of work included in three books about Doctor Who - 'You and Who' and 'You and Who: Contact Has Been Made', both by Miwk Publishing, and 'Celebrate Regenerate', published by Lulu. My motto is that 'writing is my strength, by which I live.
