I'm Welsh and a student of English and French. I write about all sorts of things (friendship, love, gender roles, LGBT+ issues, prejudice and hate, etc.) mostly in the form of fantasy stories and poetry. I am inspired by my favourite authors (e.g. Ursula LeGuin, Margaret Atwood, Toni Morrison and Jeanette Winterson) and also by my favourite musical artists, like Björk, Karin Dreijer, Imogen Heap, Nightwish, Amanda Palmer, Regina Spektor, Bat for Lashes and literally billions more.

I'm currently redrafting my first novel, 'The Vampire & The Dead Boy', a fantasy story aimed at young adults. I'm also working on a collection of stories and poems entitled 'The Juvenalia'.

The works I upload onto Wattpad are those I'm not trying to publish commercially. Most of them I wrote during my teens (between the age of 15-17). I hope you enjoy them. Comments are very much appreciated, and if you fan me I will love you 5eva, which is one more than 4eva. x

Sugoi! I love Bleach and this poem captures beautifully the character of Kuchiki Byakuya using the ever-impressive imagery of the sakura :D

This is really good. I like the way you use short lines to emphasise the loneliness of the seamstress at first, also breaking up the poem like it...
