I'm an educational researcher by day, and a YA fiction writer for fun by night! I also have a meteorology degree, but I don't do much with it. All the years of science writing influenced my need to write something different.
When I moved to Manchester, UK from the US, I found I had some time on my hands, and fancied a try at writing fiction. It's quite different than science writing, and I have to say, I really enjoy it!
