3rd Place Runner-up in GGP's 2013 'Flashy Shorts' Competition with her Flash Fiction entry The Geriatric Ward.

Tell us a little bit about you:

I am a freelance writer of Non Fiction publications based on the care, welfare and training of dogs. I am a runner up in the writer of the year competition 2013 hosted by the writers bureau and love animals. I enjoy writing fiction and to improve on this is my next goal!


What do you like most about your craft?

I love being able to paint a picture with words that will touch the emotion of someone else reading those words.


What inspires/influences you?

Stephen King inspires me. Not that I even write in his style, but his writing comes first then the positive results of it come later on.


What are you working on at the moment?

I am currently writing for clients across the globe on EBook and website content based on my canine experience. I am also beginning to write short fiction to take a break from a novel I drafted in November during National Novel writing month. I am also beginning an Open University degree course in October to refine my style and qualify in language and creative writing.


We at Good Guy Publishing are mad on books, what are you reading at the moment?

Katherine Webb, She has only published three books so far and each one I have not been able to put aside, her third is sitting beside me now, open at page and waiting to be picked up!


Which three books would you list as your favourite all-time reads?

Oh my, there are so many! I loved IT by Stephen King and I also adored Ash by James Herbert which got mixed reviews. Nineteen minutes by Jodi picoult really hit me hard too. Oh I cannot commit to this question.


What are your hopes for the future?

To write, that’s all I can say.


Do you have any advice for anyone wishing to follow in your foot-steps?

Read books, read life, and read your own experiences before you write.


Where can you be found online?
