My love of stories spills into everything I do. Even when I was completing my Fine Art degree, I was constantly searching for ways to bring stories to life in my drawings and reading avidly on the side. It’s unsurprising I found my way onto a Writing Masters at Liverpool John Moore’s University in 2016. During my Masters, I found myself drawn more and more to novels and short stories, and I haven’t looked back since. For me, books are a gateway to other worlds and other times. They can pick you up, change your perspective and stay with you long after you’ve finished the final sentence. From Stephen Chbosky’s The Perks of Being a Wallflower to Naomi Alderman’s The Power, I am drawn to compelling voices and captivating stories.

Having moved to London from Wales to pursue a career in publishing, I interned at Blake Friedmann for nine months, and am beyond excited to join the Hardman & Swainson team as assistant.
