Hi I'm Jake. And I love writing. 

I have done since primary school. For me, writing was an escape.

I was bullied in school since about year 3 onwards. It really only stopped when I left. I was autistic so I had my own definition of normal and that didn't really fit in with the consensus.

I found writing a way of creating a world for myself, a better world where I had the power to do whatever I wanted. I had that space, and that was vital growing up.

Through the highs and the lows of my mental health journey writing was really got me through. And now I'm through the hard part of my journey of recovery, I still continue to write.

I love helping people and writing is the best medium that I can do that. From sharing marketing advice (my day job) on my blogs, Quora and social to being there in the DMs for those with low mental health.

Writing has given me that space to express myself which I have found invaluable. And it's something I want to share here.

If you'd like to talk about anything or have an idea for one of my stories (I'm always looking for new inspiration) then please do send me a message.
