-Curt Wild/Velvet Goldmine

Though Wendy may have been kicked out of the nursery when she grew up, she still lingers on outside by the window reminiscing about the past, good and bad.

As Queen of Team Secrets on the Decameron 2.0 hosted by @rskovach I'd like you to meet my amazing team!

REASONS TO LIVE is a Featured Story! One of the stories from this collection has been published in the 'Rethinking The Plot' anthology-Kingston University London.

I'm a published author. 'Goblin Garden' is a bi-lingual book of dark poetry written in English & Greek (published by 'O Kupos Me Tis Lexis/Ο Κηπος με τις Λεξεις' publishing house). It's here: & in bookshops in Greece.

If you've enjoyed a chapter feel free to comment/vote. Your feedback means a lot to me & I'm thankful to those who've taken the time to let me know they have enjoyed my work.

I've been on @TheCornerBooth panel talking about poetry with fellow Wattpadders @rosaimee, @OwainGlyn & @5ifthproject:

No, no, nO, NO reading requests.

My work/pictures are only shared here & on my FB/Twitter.

Your pen must not only create words, it must carve a story into something touching human or beyond.
