Fiction is my escape, and my catharsis.
My first published piece, 'Destiny', is a fictionalised account of the abusive relationship I experienced as a teenager and helped me to deal with the memories of that experience.
When I write, I'm always exploring something that's been on my mind, and hoping to connect with someone.
Having been one of those teenagers who was always writing angsty poems, I never thought of them as a way of expressing myself as an adult, let alone having people enjoy my poetry. Then I came out, and the best way I found to express it, was through poetry.
