Too old for Hogwarts, too few midi-chlorians to become a Jedi, too tall for a hobbit, too weak-stomached for GoT. Basically, I love the SFF but I’m not a main character, that’s why I write about them!
I’m a 34-year-old Scottish writer, who also teaches Biology, and loves rugby, burgers, and watching too many series on Netflix (I’m more Netflix and geek, than chill, alright?). And, of course, reading all the YA SFF!
Seriously, strike up a conversation about Star Wars or Marvel/DC and I’m all yours…
