I'm a London-raised, Los Angeles-based woman who stands 5' 1" and has two fairly small tattoos. I love rock 'n roll, fashion magazines, road trips, free beauty products, making mix CDs, dolphins, being in love, seafood, the 1970s, Harry Potter, stray animals and flaming margaritas. I have written for Dazed&Confused, Cosmopolitan, the LA Times, LA Weekly, Village Voice, Paper magazine, and Juxtapoz. My fiction has been published by Little Episodes in the UK, and I am working on my first novel.
