Born
in Glastonbury, The United Kingdom
Member Since
January 2014


My fascination with animals began when I was aged 8 and a stray cat walked in the back door and decided to adopt me. As a child, I wanted to be a writer and used to dictate stories to my mother, but eventually I bought a laptop and decided I could type them myself. I live in Dorset and share the space around my desk with two dogs, Harry and Coco. MA in Creative and Critical Writing from University of Winchester.

“But Angel and I both know that one day Lunar will want to kick; he will want to live and be what he is supposed to be.”
Sarah Lean, A Horse for Angel

“It was nice that he remembered. He was so forgetful these days. He forgot he had to do the ironing. He forgot to shave. He forgot to pay the phone bill, and it took weeks for them to connect us up again. He was just like a raggedy old bear still sleepy from hibernating over winter.”
