I have a completely unrelated degree in Egyptology and Classical Civilisation, and a MA in Classical Studies, so expect a lot of ancient world influence.
Words and language are fascinating to me, and one of my favourite things about writing is crafting the perfect metaphor. It’s also one of the reasons I took an Indo-European class during my MA – did you know that the Indo-European word for man was wer? Hence, werewolf! I am also, quite obviously, a big nerd.
