Vintage golden pen and ancient manuscripts

I am a writer, crafter and plot-nerd, living and working in Oxford, England – a place which is as close to a fantasy world as can be found by human means! Having been raised with traditional folk and fairy tales since I was a wee nipper, I always wanted to start writing my own. Then, in a moment of complete madness… I started doing just that! 20180529_152746

This site contains my short stories, and a series talking about my experiences in building my very own fantasy world. There is also a section dedicated to the wild and wacky shenanigans of my colleague, Ivan the Wyvern (seen here looking beautiful!), for whom this blog is named. And there’s some non-sensical musing on a few of the weird and wonderful aspects of Oxford and those who live here. If you find that you like any (or all) or these, please do get in touch and let me know what you think!

I aim to publish new material regularly, so please do follow me to keep up to date!

When I’m not writing, I can usually be found either hidden behind a large stack of books as they defy the laws of physics, or tangled up in yarn and crochet hooks.
