ABOUT ME

Writer & Literary Scholar, specialising in the history, theory, criticism and analysis of Literature, Film and Art - with a passion for the Victorian, Edwardian and Interwar periods. 

I write academic study guides and summaries for literary works and textbooks up to postgraduate level. I also write essays and reviews for academic, literary, film and art journals, magazines, websites and blogs.

My studies include a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Art History & Film, a Master of Arts in English Literature, and a Master of Arts in Magazine Journalism. I have also attained newspaper and magazine journalism awards from the National Council for the Training of Journalists. 

I am currently undertaking part-time research for a Doctor of Philosophy in English Literature. Further to my thesis, my independent research and writing interests extend out to the Victorian period, the Edwardian era, the Interwar years, and the symbiotic relationship between Literature, Film and Art. 

I also have 12 O' Levels (7 A's, 3 B's, 2 C's) and 4 A’ Levels (BBBC) - including English Literature, Film Studies and Art History certificates in both.

When I'm not working I love to read, relax with my beautiful cats Gypsy and Poppy, dabble in painting with oils and acrylics, collect all things vintage (my home resembles a museum!) and listen to jazz.
