It's a clichÃ© but I have been writing as long as I can remember; subjecting my mum, teachers, friends and even lovers to an endless array of well-written and not so well-written short stories. Once, I even incorporated a zombie short into a year 9 English class. From the age of 14 I have had the odd thing published here and there, mainly online or in new writer anthologies, but also I have worked on different projects, such as a play (which was then performed by the local youth theatre group). Writing is something that has always been there for me, mainly as a release of my sometimes overly cynical views but often it is something that helps translate the chaos in which I feel this world exists.

When did you start writing?2002 Chorley, UK.
What do you love about short stories?Short fiction is a flash that encompasses a whole world. You see and feel everything in barely any time at all. I like that.
Do you write in other forms?Only a couple of poems and the odd play.
What distracts you from writing?Etching out a living, partying with friends, watching The Walking Dead. Anything really, I'm a born procrastinator.
Outside of writing, what are your other passions?Yoga and rock climbing are as sporty as I get.
What is your favourite book?Barrow's Boys by Fergus Flemming. It's non-fiction about some amazing explorers in the 1800s. I get envious of their journeys into unexplored land, then I remember they all had scurvy and frostbite.
Who are your favourite writers?Margaret Atwood. , Evelyn Waugh and Raymond Carver.
Where is your dream location?Somewhere sunny, with friends and a relaxed life.
What one item would you put into Room 101?People who shoot down the dreams of others.
Do you have any advice for new writers?Don't be too harsh on yourself and always enjoy it. Never write just for money, cause it'll never happen. Write for yourself, it's your expression after all.
