⁂ Hey there! I'm Gavin Hetherington, the writer of the 'Abyssal Sanctuary' series (and more). Important to note I'm a big dreamer and I'm constantly chasing my dreams. Impossible means nothing to me and I blame J. K. Rowling and Disney. I am a huge lover of Disney films (FROZEN OBSESSED)! I'm also a hopeless romantic because I've never had a boyfriend. 

⁂ When I'm not writing, I'm working a part-time job while studying English Literature at University. I'm also a Senior Staff Writer for SpoilerTV (Pretty Little Liars, Salem). I volunteer abroad with Reach Out Volunteers; I helped out in Cambodia (2015) and South Africa (2016).

⁂ I was featured on a panel at WattCon in New York in 2016 with some of Wattpad's biggest Stars and HQ team. Also did a Live Q&A for the 2015 Fright Week on Twitter with Wattpad. Took over Wattpad Snapchat at LonCon on December 3, 2016.
