I'm a 22 year old female, and live in the South of England. I've been writing since I was about 8, but didn't start to write seriously until I was at college.
I write poetry, songs, stories, and pretty much anything that pops into my head. Being an avid reader (is this an ~essential~ past time as a writer? - I think so), I spend most of my free (*L*) time with Stephen King, Anne Rice, terry Pratchett, and more recently JK Rowling, so they influence my work quite alot.
