Although I have a passion for physics, if I could earn a living doing anything, it would be writing. I have always had a passion for writing and when I was younger I dreamed of being an author like JK Rowling, now I dream of being an author more like Ellen Hopkins. I want my writing to be truthful and make you feel the pain, agony and suffering of the person, but also to feel their joys and triumphs. I want to be a writer that changes the way that the reader thinks about a serious issue (ie: eating disorders, sexual assault or unneeded pressure to be considered perfect) by giving them a first hand account of being in these scenarios. I will start by going to small independent publishing companies so I can get my works printed, and as more people hear about my books I will broaden my options on publishing and publicity events. Hopefully one day I will also be able to start my own charity to raise awareness of such issues.
