I have never written a blog before, but here’s a little about myself.

I am a senior student at Mount Mercy University, in Iowa U.S.A. I double major in history and political science, and minor in English.

I am here in Iowa on a soccer scholarship, and I support Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. back home. Other sporting interests include tennis and cricket, and I’m currently enjoying watching the Winter Olympics.

Outside of sport, I can often be found reading. My favourite genres include dystopian fiction and magical realism, but my favourite authors range from Dickens to Nabokov to Kazuo Ishiguro. I love gothic architecture, surrealist paintings, musicals, obscure bookshops and Indie music.
