With a degree in English Literature, and a second in computers you could be forgiven for wondering what I was thinking, believe me, I honestly don’t have a clue!
I have been writing for many years, and have always had a love of great literature (and some not so great, it’s all personal). I caught the fanfic bug before I really knew what fanfic was; so desperate to know what happened next to Sorry Carlisle and Laura Chant that I wrote my own ‘3 years later’ story. Of course, when I was 11 the internet was but a glimmer in the eye of Tim Berners-Lee (well, not so much a glimmer, but definitely not public access), so there was nowhere to publish what I wrote, so I just typed it up and kept it for my own amusement.
Years later, when I discovered the wonder of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Roswell High I found myself hooked. Out the window went all the original stuff I had been working on, and in came the stories of Willow and Spike and Michael and Maria. It’s been 20 years since that point (scary thought) and I have seen trends come and go, popular shows fade from the public eye only to remain in the hearts of loyal fans everywhere. I have also moved fandoms probably 10 times (I am still searching for somewhere I feel as comfortable as I did when I was writing for the Roswell community though).
That aside: who am I?
I am a woman living in the UK (I love the South Coast, the early morning sun and the smell of the salt in the air). I work as an editor, I also freelance as a content creator and proofreader (you need someone, just contact me). I have a cat (you will see quite a lot of her on here, she’s my pride and joy; a hyperactive fluffball who thinks 3am means playtime).
I love to write, enjoy books (really need to catch up on my reading), and have dreamed for ever about getting properly published (book launch, publicity tour, movies, the lot).
I am a perpetual dieter, who likes food far too much.
I really enjoy watching procedurals like NCIS and Elementary, and comedies such as The Middle and Modern Family; I prefer my TV to be a little bit more lighthearted and entertaining, though I won’t say no to a good Mary Beard documentary about ancient Rome, or programmes about how people lived across the centuries.
I like to travel, though I haven’t had the opportunity as much in recent years. I worked out, not that long ago, that I have visited more places in the US than I have in my own country (pretty shocking), but it’s actually easier (and takes less time) to fly to New York than travel to Scotland by train!
I am trying out online dating again, and you will read about my unusual experiences occasionally. It’s actually a far more stressful endeavour than I remember it being, but I guess anything worth doing is worth doing well, right?
