Having grown up in an apartment complex inhabited by certain surprisingly dysfunctional residents and their very off-putting kids, I relegated myself to my ‘Bat-cave’ where I spent time reading, daydreaming and playing computer games.
Many years later, I’m still doing a lot of reading, daydreaming and computer games but I’ve also discovered a new passion – writing. Writing is liberating, and at times refreshing to me.
Writing a new piece of fiction, building a storyline, characters and creating elaborate settings; all of the things involved with writing fiction excite me (as does my ongoing ‘Traitor’ Series). I had to learn, however, that growing up brings with it the responsibility to sometimes put away the daydreaming and computer games and do stuff that society deems to be more productive. It is then that I went on to become the accomplished procrastinator that I am.
Come join me on this blog (which is turning out to be quite an experience for me) where I shall post usually intense mystery/crime fiction interspersed with not-so-intense thoughts and ramblings of my seventeen year old self, quotes (because I’m quite into quotes) and other random things I feel like saying, like how much the vibrations given off by my desk fan bother me, or how I get really inspired by Pinterest’s DIY thingalings but then lose all determination once I actually start making something, or how much I want a dog.
“When I say work I only mean writing. Everything else is just odd jobs.”
