Seven Things About Me:

  1. I have an undergraduate degree and a Master’s degree in Art History. My Master’s thesis was written on English ecclesiastical sculpture from the twelfth century. So I have a bit of a soft spot for cathedrals.
  2. I love terrible cheesy ghost hunting shows. The more night vision/fake gasping the better.
  3. I’m Canadian but I’m currently living in England. I moved to London in 2016 and lived there for a few months before moving to a small town on the outskirts of the city. I love London and go into the city any chance I can get!
  4. I’m currently obsessed with La La Land. I didn’t see it until December last year so the rest of the world has moved on. Currently, 99% of my day is listening to the soundtrack.
  5. I have a house rabbit named Burrito and he’s my baby.
  6. I was stung by a jellyfish on a beach in Prince Edward Island when I was a teenager, but I’ve never been stung by a bee. Knock on wood.
  7. And my final fun fact is that I participated in Nanowrimo for the first time this year and won a few days before the end of November! I’m still working on the draft for my novel and I’m hoping to try and get it published one day… we shall see!

    Aw thank you so much for the tag, sweetie! <3

    I CANNOT stand ghost hunting shows. Okay, wait, let me rephrase that. I sometimes have random urges to watch them, but I end up either keeping my eyes closed for 3/4 of the show, or end up switching the channel because I am a huge wuss when it comes to SEEING ghosts. I'm a huge fan of horror BOOKS, but SHOWS/MOVIES? I might faint. XD

    Your rabbit is SO CUTE! I love the name Burrito. Very classy. 😉

    Aaaand congrats on NaNo! <3 I would definitely love to read your novel ~when~ it gets published. ^_^

      I think you have a more normal reaction to ghost hunting shows than I do! I don’t know what’s wrong with me, I think I’ve become somewhat immune to all of them because I’ve just watched SO many. Movies, on the other hand, do occasionally scare me. I’m the biggest wimp when it comes to Japanese horror films specifically. I watched The Ring when it first came out and it ruined my sleep for nearly a month. And then I made the mistake of watching Ringu a few years later. But I can’t help myself.. I love watching horror anything because for some reason I love to be scared!

      Thank you! I love him, he’s the funniest little animal I’ve ever known. He’s quite the explorer as you can see in that photo.

      I really hope to have it published one day! It’s turned into my baby, but it really needs a lot of work. I’ll be sure to let you know if/when I publish it!
