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

Thanks for taking a look at my profile. Here some bits and pieces about me...

I grew up in the Midlands, went to Exeter for my undergrad and then on t0 Birmingham. Ended up going to Greece for a year to teach English and avoid having a proper job, and after that I went to Spain. I've been in London for eight years now and, after moving about a lot, I've found work/lifestyle that seems to suit, although I'm always up for new experiences (e.g. I fancy trying yoga and visiting the black forest...).

For work I write for a living. I've got two books out so far and another on the way. I tend to lean towards more gothic, darkly humorous stuff. It's a weird job and I still feel like I've no idea what I'm doing! Also, I recently went back into normal work doing writing for different organisations; I didn't like working from home much (too isolating) and it's great having colleagues again!!

On top of writing, I travel around the country teaching creative writing in schools. It's great fun, pretty surreal, and I get to talk about zombie islands, spaceship cannibalism and rampaging hydras for a living so I've got no complaints.

I'm a bit of a learning nut as well, and really enjoy absorbing new information and ideas. I've studied a fair bit too and 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 while!

Re music I'm listening to a lot of Wolf Parade, Nick Cave, The Deep Dark Woods and Springsteen. If it twangs or rocks I'm in, and I enjoy gigs too.

I LOVE watching a good film too. My favs are The Darjeeling Ltd and Forgetting Sarah Marshall (not the most high-brow but it makes me laugh every time). Last film I saw in the cinema was Boyhood.

I read a fair bit but don't have a particular favourite genre. At the moment I'm reading a lot of crime novels for some reason.
The six things I could never do without

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 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).
