M.J. Bavis coined her first book as a teenager and it was about horses, mean girls and a misunderstood heroine—and a worrying amount of violence. It took a move from her Finnish childhood home to the UK, a degree in Criminology and a whole lot of (she hopes) maturing to realise horses and mean girls weren't her thing. Still, she loves writing young adult novels with a bit of fantasy, mystery, big emotions and headstrong characters. When she’s not writing she’s fangirling over the Arrow, binging on Netlifx or browsing for her next book to read on her e-reader.

Her debut novel, Shadow Soul—a story of a broken girl learning to slay her demons—is available in e-book and paperback formats on Amazon.

She popped into my head as this person who inserts herself into people's lives for a little while and then disappears. Then came the opening scene and the story evolved from there. Admittingly, the actual plot has changed massively from when I first started writing it, but the basic idea—overcoming, not giving up, rising from the ashes—has been the thin red line running throughout the writing process.(less)
