Get to
know me!

In the realm of storytelling, every word holds the magic of meaning.

I've been writing stories long and short since my formative years, but it was my first encounter with media and communications as a teenager that taught me the true depth a story can contain, how the smallest details can have significance. I pursued that interest in storytelling and world-building through to university, where I obtained a first-class honours degree.

With a background in media and culture, and a passion for storytelling nurtured throughout my academic journey, I ventured into marketing and content creation roles. During this time, I also refined my editing skills while working as a professional beta reader.

 

In November 2019, I established EC Editorial, and in February 2021, I expanded to introduce EC Editorial Cover Designs.

"Where are you from?" is my least favourite question. Born in Yorkshire, I grew up across South East Asia from the age of six. Home is difficult to define for me, so to keep it simple, I just look for where my dog is!

I am endlessly fascinated by the horror genre. In fact, for my university dissertation, I wrote an analysis of how society and culture affect horror across the world in three areas: reaction, reason, and resolution.

When I was no older than five, I wrote my first story: Peter and the Hedgehog. It was inspired by an episode of Come Outside I'd been watching earlier that day. And I've not stopped writing since.
