“I launched my writing career with a visionary approach to storytelling through the medium of blogging. My brainchild, People of the Sea, quickly garnered recognition for its insightful interviews and captivating surf-themed short stories and narratives. This success laid the foundation for my next step, a Master’s degree in Professional Writing from Falmouth University, where I honed my skills and perfected my craft to the highest level.
Since then, I have established myself as a versatile and dynamic writer, with my work appearing in a wide range of prestigious magazines, showcasing a breadth of genres, from thought-provoking interviews to imaginative short stories and fantastical fiction. My self-published debut book, ‘The Samurai,’ Book One of an epic trilogy, has been met with widespread acclaim and has solidified my place as a rising star in the literary world.”
