I am now twenty four years old, and have been writing for twelve years. I went to the University of Wales, Lampeter and studied English with Creative Writing for three years, though I did start on an Ancient History and Archaeology course since my father doubted I would become a writer and told me to choose a degree with a career I could fall back on. Needless to say it was the wrong course for me, and I was lucky that there was an English department I could defect to.
Since graduating University in 2010 I have worked as a waitress in a Sushi bar, a supermarket hand at Tesco and in August 2011 I started working as an English Teacher in Japan. Since graduating my writing has mostly dried up, though I am hoping to go back and work on some of my own works.
I am publish as a non-fictional article writer on Suite101, but much prefer fictional writing, and can be found on protagonize as Zoe Runcorn and fanfcition.net as Manga_bird, though it has been a while since I updated any of my stories on either of these sites.
Aside from writing I enjoy fencing, which I have stopped since coming to Japan due to there being no Fencing clubs, and Ballroom and Latin dancing, which I have also stopped for the moment. I also enjoy role playing, particularly the World Of Darkness systems, and hope to soon host an email rpg with some friends in England. As you can see from my profile picture, I like the Gothic Lolita style of clothing, and own quite a few wigs; I also cosplay at anime conventions with some university friends.
