I have always loved writing stories in school and outside of school. Reading is my passion, it helps me cope with day-to-day struggles. I have a theatre background that I used to do at college, a lot of the time I was always the one to push myself to do better. Amethyst has shown me that mental health and abuse is a dangerous game and that its victims are not alone. I started writing this as an English essay which later turned into something bigger and better. I was born in a town called Wolverhampton but moved around most of my life. I was able to write about the religious beliefs because I had been taught them by my nana and I was taught that God is all-forgiving. I stopped believing in myself for a short period of time and amethyst helped me come to terms with who I really am.
