Hi there! 👋🏻

If this is your first time visiting – welcome! I’m thrilled you made it!

Scattered around this website you’ll find a record of my journey towards becoming an author. Most of what you’ll read here is my take on the tools, tips, tricks and traps of being a writer. Be warned: I am by no means an expert! I love to learn though and, wherever possible, to help others. I hope you find a little inspiration or perhaps some helpful advice, but if not, then feel free to enjoy a good laugh at my fumbles and utter cluelessness! You have my permission!

Much love, Shelley

P.S. If you’ve been here before – welcome back! Yes, I’m still here, still questioning the wisdom of embarking on this journey every day… and still taking pictures of my cats and hunting up hilarious animal memes online! Procrastination rocks! 😉

My Blog!

Now and then I manage to carve out the time to post about being a writer – things I’m struggling with, writing theory I’ve come across and else a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Feel free to take a look at my latest posts!

About Me!

Curious about the person behind the name and all these crazy thoughts and ideas? I can’t promise you a thrilling biography with oodles of originality, but I can tell you what I love most and why!

“A book can take you around the world and back…
All you have to do is open it!”

Come on over to Spotify and listen to the music that inspires me when I write – it’s classical and full of drama!

Want to see some of the art and images that inspire me? I’ve created a few Pinterest boards you might like!
