    Favorite Writers:
    Anyone who keeps me hooked after the first page.
    Favorite Books:
    The Granta books are great for short stories, especially The Granta Book of Irish Short Stories, and The Granta Book of American Short Stories. I turn to these when I'm lacking in inspiration.
    My favourite novel is probably The Great Gatsby. It's cliche I know, but it's incredible.
    Favorite Quotes:
    Hunter S Thompson makes for the greatest quotes. He was just the best, wasn't he? Completely mad. Anyway, he said this:
    “I have no taste for either poverty or honest labor, so writing is the only recourse left for me.” And he was right.
    Religious Beliefs:
    Political Views:
    A good cup of tea will go a long way to fixing anything.

    I study combined English at university.

    Everyone should have a cat who sits on the bed with them while they write. It works. If you don't have one, I strongly recommend sourcing one. Mine's called Spartapuss and he makes everything better.
