Mental Health

A lot of people ask me why I write, or why indeed I began to write. Like many great writers before me, I put pen to paper as it’s therapeutic.

I, like millions of others, suffer with depression, anxiety and bipolar disorder. A chemical imbalance in the brain causes this for me and alongside medication, writing is my main release.

Even though I battle with depression, it fuels my creativity and enhances what I write.

There should be no shame attached to mental health and I want all people to know, that despite your condition, with proper care you should be able to function and be creative.

Don’t suffer in silence and seek help. It’s out there for you!
