I am from Edinburgh but have lived all over England, in Canada and now in Pennsylvania.
I uploaded my historical novel,The Licenser, at end of February 2012 and it made the top 50 in 6 weeks. Thank you to everyone who read and commented! The experience has been really encouraging.
The book is now 'retired' but I have some reads outstanding. Please message me if I owe you a read.
Here are my writing highlights to date:
* 2010 Winner of Random House Canada Student Writing Award - publication of novel excerpt Charlatan.
* 2011 Received Marina Nemat Award for draft of The Licenser
* 2011 Short Story - Maiden Flight - published in Philadelphia Stories journal
*2012 Short Story - Turning Corners - shortlisted for Mslexia Short Story Competition

Fingersmith by Sarah Waters, Kafka on the Shore by Hanuki Murikami, The Children's Book by AS Byatt, The Road to Wellville by TC Boyle, Music and Silence by Rose Tremain.
I love many classics - Anna Karenin, Jane Eyre, Persuasion, Vanity Fair.... but also all PG Wodehouse and lots of thrillers, especially Minette Walters and Ian Rankin.
From Authonomy I've bought and loved Notes on an Orange Burial and Seep.
