It seems that my world revolves around words and art. I have been writing all my life and have always had a love of English literature. My English teacher at high school said I was a born writer and she loved to read my work and would also enter me into competitions.
I remember her saying you only need to write two pages for a story and I always ended up doing ten, but she always said it was gripping and expertly penned so she could never tell me off, so I just ended up going through more books than the rest of the class. I did learn over time though to adhere to rules.
Penguin /Random House offered me a book contract in 2014.
‘You Can’t Run’ Is the result of a years work and a lifetime of trauma.
