I started writing fantasy novels when I was thirteen, but pursued my fascination with animals into a career as a veterinarian. I never stopped dreaming and writing, diving into fictional worlds as as escape from the veterinary world I worked in.
Animals and medicine have become such strong focal points in my life that they inevitably become a focus in my writing. I’m not convinced that’s a bad thing.
I’m still working as a vet and writing in my spare time. I don’t think I could give up either passion if I tried.
