Status: Completely overwhelmed about The Devil's Master making the #Wattys2018 longlist :)

Thanks for visiting my world of The Tempered, tales of Victorian lunatic asylum inmates who discover they are 'Tempered', of mixed magical blood.

My writing is a melting pot of genres: Gothic, Paranormal, Gaslamp, Magic, Fantasy, Historical, Vampire, Witch, Werewolf and Sorcery.

I love Gothic and supernatural literature, and I'm an 80's pop culture tragic who loves The Princess Bride. My favourite villain is Darth Vader and my favourite hero is Indiana Jones.

I am undertaking a PhD in creative writing exploring digital serial writing techniques. Posting commentary in response to my stories on Wattpad will be taken as your implied consent to participate in a research project. The aim of this project is not to gather information on readers, but rather to examine how comments help me to improve my own writing.
