I am a graduate from the University of Chester with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Creative Writing, as well as a Master's in Nineteenth-Century Literature and Culture. During my time at university I managed to get my MA dissertation officially published due to obtaining a Distinction class grade, whilst also having some poetry published in magazines as a hobby. I have been an avid gamer for the past eighteen years, beginning with a Nintendo gameboy when I was six. I now regularly play Playstation and Nintendo properties, and have begun to apply my passion of games into writing through my blog activities.
