Please click here to access my CV.

I might be Jess, Danielle, or even Dani to you if you’re really lucky. I’m 21 and I’m currently doing a Masters in Creative Writing, Publishing and Editing. My undergraduate degree was in English Literature with Creative Writing. If you read the homepage, which I hope you did, you’ll know that I’ve gone from a small town in England to Melbourne. It’s pretty different here. I like it.

I first created this site after receiving several requests from Poldark fans who wanted a chance to read my dissertation. From now I’m going to be using this site to share both my creative and nonfiction work. Hopefully there will be something for everyone.

As well as doing my Masters, I’m also a writer at SUBCULTURED Magazine. You can see my articles here. I’m pretty active on Twitter too. In terms of creative writing, my main interest is towards Young Adult fiction. Considering that I am a young adult myself, this works out nicely.

A lot of my writing will feature the same characters in different situations, so if you stick around you should get to know everyone pretty well!

The only other things that you might need to know are that I enjoy pop punk and Poldark a significant amount. In fact, I did my dissertation on Poldark. You can read it here.

And if there’s anything else you want to know about me? You’ll have to read more to find out.
