Purple is on a distinguished road
Post Good Morning!

Hey everyone. As a brand spanking new member I thought it only respectable that I give you all a formal hello before diving into the glorious bowels of the place!

I'm currently a university student in the UK, studying towards a BA in Management. I've always had a passion for writing and have written my very first novel over the past few years. Throughout my life I've been a avid reader and lover of fantasy novels and thought now would be the perfect time to span my horizons in terms of genres, literature styles and all the rest.

It's a pleasure to meet you all and I really look forward to getting to know you all better.
