My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.

Thanks for taking a look at my profile. I have no idea how this comes across but here goes anyway:

Writing - I do it for a living. I've got two books out so far and more should be finished soon(ish). I tend to lean towards more gothic, darkly humorous stuff. It can be a lot of fun and it was a great feeling seeing my books on the shelves of Waterstones for the first time. Also, I've just started working in digital marketing too. I love social media/article writing/etc. so it seems daft not to.

Learning stuff - I've ended up with two masters degrees in Egyptology and Global Politics. They were interesting but I think I need a break from academia for a bit. I'm currently thinking about what to do next: may be a Masters in Creative Writing, psychology, or possibly a graduate Law course, we'll see.

Teaching - I travel around the country teaching creative writing in schools. It's great fun and pretty surreal, but I get to talk about zombie islands, spaceship cannibalism and rampaging hydras for a living so I've no complaints. Also, I've lived in Greece and Spain where I taught TEFL so Guardian GSM lifestyle requirements ticked there.

Eating out - I love going to restaurants and I pop down to the local sushi place for lunch a couple times a week. I have a "usual" there now and I'm a bit proud of that.

Music - Currently listening to a lot of Wolf Parade, Nick Cave, The Deep Dark Woods and Springsteen. I enjoy gigs too although most of the bands I like don't tend to play in the UK that much.

Films and TV - I love comedies and at the moment Archer, Family Guy and South Park are my favourite TV series. In terms of films, I watch all sorts. The Darjeeling Ltd is probably my favourite and I enjoy a good Will Ferrell comedy too. Supernatural ones freak me out although I do find myself fascinated by them.

Butterfly houses - absolutely love them and I want one in my garden, I need a garden first though.

Authors - Huge Pratchett fan, plus Clarke, Murakami, Maugham, are authors I like that immediately spring to mind. I enjoy lots of others too and read a great deal; I don't have a particular genre I stick to. Currently enjoying CJ Sansom's Dark Fire, Herbert's Dune (again), and rereading Thud! by Pratchett (I usually read Pratchett at least once a month).

Movies - Big Wes Anderson fan - The Darjeeling Ltd is my fav - plus it made me want to wear Marc Jacobs suits. Also, I saw Tell No One recently and loved it.

TV- Arrested Development, Family Guy, the Sopranos, Firefly, Jeeves and Wooster, South Park, Fresh Meat, Peep Show, Archer, Spaced, West Wing, Californication, Community, and Bored to Death.

Music - Bruce Springsteen, Shearwater, Wolf Parade, Magnetic Fields, Sunset Rubdown, The Decemberists, Blitzen Trapper, The Deep Dark Woods, and Okkervil River

Food - I'll eat anything. Addicted to ricotta stuffed peppers at the moment. This will change.

Holidays - I'm not a fan of crowds so I much prefer holidays to remote places rather than city breaks.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Decent restaurants
Cynical humour

Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm prepared to admit I watched the new Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with my mum. It was weird (the situation not the film - well the film was a bit weird too but mainly the situation).
