Hello, everyone!

It’s nice to meet you – I’m Amy,  a Creative Writing Graduate from England. Through this blog I’ll be sharing everything I’ve learned about writing and the publishing industry as I work on my debut novel, “Chasing Shadows“. It’s taken countless hours of work and research to finish this manuscript, and now I hope I’ll be able to help you on your own writing journey by sharing my experiences, successes and mistakes.

Chasing Shadows

As my manuscript nears completion, I want to start sharing a few sneak peaks with you. Click here to find out a little more about the novel, or find the “Chasing Shadows” tab at the top of the page.

About Me

I first took an interest in writing when I was about fourteen, so I started volunteering articles for the local newspaper, covering the sorts of events that you would expect from a teenager – school plays, fetes, that sort of thing. I remember being particularly upset when they changed one of my headlines to “School Concert Hits the Right Note”. I think they must have used that pun at least once a week. My first real success came during my university studies when I started writing media reviews for a national magazine. It was hard work, but I did enjoy getting to watch 3-4 hours of TV for every article I produced! Still, my real passion has always been in fiction so I’m excited to be able to produce my first full-length manuscript! When I’m not writing, I’m either at work or playing video games. Right now, I’m working for an editorial board at a multinational corporation, producing and editing copy for their web site. But previous to that, I had some very cool volunteer and temp experiences including an admin position with a top-ten YouTube group and a job as a private tutor, teaching basic Japanese. But my favourite of all was the time I volunteered at an Undertaker’s Parlor, observing and learning about embalming. It was that experience which inspired me to explore paranormal fantasy.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you’ll find this blog helpful on your own writing journey.
