I hold a degree in screenwriting and I am currently working as a blogger and writer. I have worked in many industries including fashion, fitness and beauty. From owning a Pilates studio which was frequented by professional athletes and Hollywood celebrities to working with international fashion brands, I feel like I’ve done it all and I’m lucky to be able to draw on all of these rich experiences when it comes to my writing. My book, Tell Me What You See visual writing prompts for the wandering writer is is the fresh perspective writers and creatives have been looking for. As writers, we are always encouraged to show not tell and these exercises will teach participants how to see the world around them and examine the descriptive details in their own writing. I am currently working on a family memoir as well as a book of short stories based on my travels.
