I've been lucky enough to have a few short stories published but this community and the friends I have made on here have helped me become the writer I am today, largely due to the comment and critique I have received over the last few years.

I started off on Wattpad as a writer, then became a Wattpad Ambassador (more details here if you're interested - http://www.wattpad.com/user/Ambassadors ), and now I work full time for Wattpad which is a blast.
