I am a student at The University of Plymouth, who has recently graduated with a BA (Hons) English and History. I am currently studying for an MRes in English, with an interest in the philosophy Cosmicism and its use in Post World War Two science fiction.

I am a writer, traveller, Taoist and human being. Life is a beautiful experience, and I plan to live it as well as I can… and write a few words along the way. I have published two poetry collections in the last year, Nothing But The Rain and The Silent Balance. Be sure to check them out on Amazon!

A quick note on awards. I want you all to know I am beyond grateful for the nominations I have received in the past. Each one is amazing, and I am truly honoured… But unfortunately, I don’t have the time to respond to them in the manner they require at present, and for those who have nominated me and I have not fulfilled I am truly sorry. I wish I had more time to do so. But I am completely honoured.

If you want to contact me, email: darknesswarmth [@] gmail . com. Thank you for reading.

Regards and happiness to you all,
