I write science fiction, YA, MG, non-fiction, and I explore topics like gender, literacy, mental health, poverty, inequality, climate change, and social justice in my writing. That's also the kind of thing I like to read!

My inspirations: Ursula Le Guin (my hero), CS Lewis (his sci-fi), Gene Roddenberry, Edgar Allan Poe, Haruki Murakami, Robert Heinlein, JRR Tolkien, Charles Dickens, Margaret Atwood, Phillip Dick, William Gibson, Carl Jung, Joseph Campbell and Michael Talbot.

Currently working on Dark Star, a post-apocalyptic sci-fi with time travel, robots, aliens, a dangerous cult, and a touch of adolescent romance between Liran (18) and Imorah (16). It's the 5th and final book in The Dreaming series.

The community and support on Wattpad is amazing; I've made so many friends, and read so many great stories. Please see my reading lists with my favourites.

If you've read this far, then you should know that I'm super approachable -- if you have any questions, please ask! I don't have much time to read, I'll be honest, so thanks for understanding!
