I was born in 1997 and raised in East Anglia, though have probably spent most of my life exploring other worlds. I am a fan of superheroes, fantasy universes and macabre realities, though have a soft spot for cooking and music. When not writing I'm either escaping into video games or working as a teaching assistant.
My top authors include Tolkien, George R.R Martin, Lovecraft, Raymond E. Feist and Andrzej Sapkowski amongst others, and I have self-published two books – ‘Sanguine Town: Under the Moon’ and ‘A Drop of Nightshade’ – with plans to publish more in future.

    There is a novel I have been writing for many years, always attempting to perfect but never being quite happy with. I recently restarted it for the third time, making this my fourth version in 6 years. As much as I adore this project I am growing very frustrated in the writing of it; lately I have considered that this is because I have not had people with whom to share it, and so my passion has sometimes wavered.
    I am not promising to share it here, but I am considering that, sometime soon, Doomprince may find life here.
    (A scary thought: it is my baby and the main piece of work I want to succeed with)

    mumbled "Lovecraft"

    Last night I started reading Lovecraft and, coupled with a very philosophical conversation I had, it has served to inspire me. What unusual things may spill out of my mind now I do not know, but I look forward to sharing them.
    And if you haven't read Lovecraft yet give it a go. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

    mumbled "Can't Keep Reading..."

    Do you ever come across a book that you just can't keep reading? That just feels so tedious that you get bored every time you turn a page?
    For me that book right now is Justin Somper's "Allies & Assassins: A Conspiracy of Princes". I'm not saying it's a bad book, but I'm struggling with it; I can't get into it and feel like I'm just reading it out of duty because it's on my reading list.
    What do I do? XD

    I have that all the time XD. I literally force myself to connect with a certain character so I'm always excited for the next mention of their name or their next action. XD Once it took me a whole year to complete this one book because I got so bored.

    If for whatever reason the book isn't grabbing me and making me want to read it I just stop and go read something else instead.

    I really do't see any point trying to force yourself to read a book that you just can't get into, even if it comes highly rated by other people or it is in your favourite genre.

    I say just give up it, it should never be a chore to read a book nor leave you with an oh well, I suppose I'll give it another go feeling before you pick it back up again.

    What I'm trying to say is; step away from that motherf***ing book right now.

    Hello everyone. I've decided to use Movellas again. I've missed the sense of community I had here (even if I am generally terrible at conversation). Hope to start sharing my work with you guys again soon.

    @[Kyle J Durrant] (I feel like this is a sign that you & me are destined to be here on Movellas) What are the odds of you returning one day after I've made my return? In all honesty, I'm so freakin' happy that I'm seeing the Legends who stayed supporting me, and those Legends who also went on to do much better things in Life with their unique talents, and that incredible brain of theirs. Looking good, pal- Love the sunglasses! I gotta admit, I never expected you to return. I always thought you were still here... but I guess I lost track of time. Welcome back, Kyle! Great to see you again! I can't wait to see what you have planned for your return. I can only imagine it's going to be out of this world (:

    Hey guys. So I'm not using Movellas any more. It's not really right for me. Nothing anyone's done wrong, in fact I've met some amazing people on here, people I never really managed to stay in contact with. So to those who want to keep in touch come find me. You know my name :)

    I could be all just 'you know where to find me too' but that seems rude somehow...
    That said i actually have no idea where to find you.
    Where are you?
    Yeah don't worry I'll figure it out ;)

    Just added you on messenger. I don't use the rest of facebook as part of a semi political boycott. Hear from you soon?
