I was born with the gift of laughter, which often manifests itself at inappropriate times, a feeling that the world is mad, which turned out to be an understatement, and a very active imagination. Seriously, it never stops working.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve felt drawn to myths, symbols, mysteries and dark imagery and tried to make up some of my own. And so, the question was never *if* I was going to begin writing, but *when* I was going to begin writing.

To cut a long story short, I eventually did.

I created this blog to share bits of my writing – poems, stories and samples from longer works, as well as excerpts from my first book.

Yeeeeees, I have a book! It’s called “Hidden Animals” and it contains poems and stories, all revolving around the concept of using fantastical creatures as metaphors for secret and forbidden emotions. The book is available for purchase in electronic format on Amazon and Smashwords.
