‘The terrible thing about being a writer is that you don’t decide to become one, you discover that you are one.’

James Baldwin, The Creative Process, 1962

I was born in London the year before James Baldwin wrote these words, and read them many years after he died, but when I did I knew exactly what he meant.

I wrote because I had to. Because I needed to. Because if I didn’t something wasn’t right. I wrote for myself until one day I decided I wanted to write for others.

I write non-fiction and fiction. Short stories, flash fiction, and novels (unpublished so far but I’m working on it), and have even started a Novella-in-Flash. I love experimenting with different genres and if you click on the Publications tab above you’ll see what I mean.

I’m currently working on a Gothic novel set in London in 1895. Its working title is Shadows Like Them and I’ll be blogging about my progress soon. In the meantime, this is what I came up with on Canva when getting way ahead of myself and thinking about a cover.
