Goodbye for Now

Originally from London, I moved to Liverpool in 2010. I graduated from an MA Writing course at Liverpool John Moores University in 2016 and a lot of the work from the course is featured on the blog within this website. I am currently researching for a PhD in Science Fiction at LJMU.

Stories have always been a part of my life, from refusing to accept my childhood train sets would only go in a circle (because there was no journey!) to playing RPGs in my teens. I’m a huge geek, and this is probably reflected in my writing.

I have worked as an Audio Engineering lecturer at SAE Liverpool and University of Chester, teaching a new generation how to be sound engineers as well as teaching academic writing and research.
