Who Am I and Why Am I Here?
I am a writer living in London, England. Currently I am working on stories that vary in length from 500 to 20,000 words. My latest, longer works could be described as modern, gothic fairytales.
At the moment I'm promoting 'Aurelie is a Wolf' - a story of 17,000 words which follows the misadventures of a teenage, orphaned Princess who is 'discovered' and taken to a Warholesque factory in a quietly fantastical city where she is hailed as the beauty of the age. After a whirl of parties, gigs, photoshoots and unrequited love the increasingly isolated Aurelie begins to feel that she might be happier playing the role of beast rather than beauty.
In the past I have worked as a fashion journalist and published a creative writing magazine. I am also in a band at the moment called Bear Driver: www.myspace.com/thebeardriver
I'm interested in submitting to magazines, on and offline, and putting together anthologies.
