A need to do more than just one subject led her to the University of Hull, where she graduated with an honours degree in American Studies. For the third year of the four year degree, she was able to call Baton Rouge home. Since then, Louisiana has claimed a large chunk of her heart, and remains a place she will always consider home.
LSU was where she discovered FanFiction and currently writes (mainly) CSI:NY stories.
When not transcribing the stories of the angels and archangels, working, or DJing, she is at the beck and call of three cats – all of whom rank higher in the household than she does.
In terms of serious writing, I started a novel when I should have been revising for my GCSEs at 16. It took a few years to finish because I would only ever work on it when I had to revise. I go back and read it sometimes. It’s a both terrible, but the basis of a decent story is there. However, I have no intention of releasing this.
• Hmmm, well, I’d like to finish the Louisiangel series (my number one goal was publishing Angel in Training, so this is the replacement).
• I’d like to visit New York City.
• I’d like to meet Jensen Ackles – I was supposed to go to a Con in Houston last month and unfortunately that couldn’t happen.
• Fan art. I would love to see fan art – to see what images my words have conjured in reader’s heads!
• To work with schools to promote reading.
What I really wish someone had told me is that it's okay not to have a plan! You're going to be surrounded by people who will tell you that you need to know what you're doing 'when you graduate', and you're going to be surrounded by people who know what they want to do. But if you don't know, that's completely fine! There's a lot of pressure at such a young age to know your life plan – what college, what job – but it’s really not the end of the world if you don’t know. University / college may not be for you. You might decide that it is after a couple of years. You might go, hate your course and want to change. You may go, graduate, and end up in a job still not knowing what you want to do. But, that really is okay!
