I moved to Edinburgh from the Scottish Highlands in 2011 to study English Literature at Edinburgh University, where I spent 4 years reading and trying to figure out how to make a career out of it.

Through the course so far I’ve learned that publishing is so much more than just reading, and discovered interests in marketing and design that I never knew I would have. My dream is to work in fiction publishing – preferably somewhere abroad.

Outside of university, I’m still learning lots – I’m trying to teach myself coding, and Spanish. The rest of the time I’m reading, socialising, or wishing I was on a beach in Argentina. Favourite books change all the time; right now they are Under the Net by Iris Murdoch and Alexander Masters’ Stuart: A Life Backwards.

Find me on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

Current MSc Publishing student at Edinburgh Napier and book fanatic. Graduate from English Literature at the University of Edinburgh last year, having focussed my studies on a range of topics from 16th century sonnets to post-war novels. My favourite authors are Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Iris Murdoch, but I love discovering new books. Ideal job involves fiction marketing & travel!
