Gem, the writer (1)

finalI’m a writer.

I’m also a blogger and aspiring novelist. On my blog I dissect the writing process, share my work, fangirl over literature and contemplate life.

The Boy who cried Monster (my first novel) is an adventure story about shapeshifters for 8-12 year-olds. It’s in the final editing stage and I’m so excited for it to be finished!

I’m outlining my second novel, a fantasy for YA/adults (not sure yet), the bulk of which I plan to write during NaNoWriMo 2017.

I also write short stories, some of which you can find over here.

I’m a huge bibliophile: my love for reading is what made me a writer. I read across ages and genres, but I’m a big fantasy and sci-fi nerd (which is also apparent in my TV and movie tastes!)

I live in sunny & rainy Cornwall, England.

When I’m not reading or writing, you can find me walking on the beach, winning at board games or playing my ukulele.
