I grew up on the East Coast of Australia, close to the beach. I have always immersed myself in reading and writing—YA fiction in particular—except I feel it's full of stereotypes that don't reflect real life.
My personal mission is to promote diversity and originality in Young Adult literature—different cultures, races and topics; different approaches to psychology, social issues and ways of life. I aim to write diverse stories, often with fantasy elements. I also design covers and promotional materials for fellow authors.
And... I'm also a teenager.
