Profile Information

i live in a small welsh village called pontardawe with my three year old daughter and am currently studying towards my degree in english liturature.appart from the obvious interest in reading i love lots of different, art, swimming, the pub!im a daydreamer whos described by my friends as mad (too be honest, i prefer the phrase eccentric) i have had a passion for writing since i was old enough too spell and have always dreamed of creating a novel that captures its audience and is appreciated as a literary work of art, however as a teenager i rebelled against  the confounds of school and left at 16 with no education, qualifications or common sense. after school i drifted in and out of ideas of what my future may hold, my childhood dream of being an author crushed and a million worlds from the place i was in.i partied and lived a wild life.despite this,as often as possible i wrote.usually self pitying poetry which although amateur was imaginative and unusual although i never had the confidence to attempt publishing any.i was enjoying my youth, careless and care free with no intention of providing myself with a future....and then i fell pregnant!since then i have enrolled at uni doing my degree part time so i can continue supporting my child. it has re lit the fire inside me that burns to write. i have done alot of creative writing for one of my modules at uni and its my creative writing essays where my best marks are recived.while gaining a better understanding about the skills of being a writer, i have, for pleasure been writing short stories, poems and have started on a novel. in my first attempts at novel writing i failed miserably, i was trying to write a drama, and now after several  highly marked essays i have discovered that my witting tends to be dark and would fit into the thriller/drama genre, somehow one of my characters usually ends up involved in a murder (a case for concern amongst my friends as i am a very calm person who detests violence) although i feel my literary talents are flexible. i want a career as a writer, of course, not being naive enough to think that ill put pen to paper and become the next Virginia Woolf. i just want the opportunity for my work to be seen and the chance too prove myself worthy in the literary world.
