I'm Vanessa and I'm a writer, currently working on my first novel. In 2015, I won the Pitch Perfect competition for unpublished writers at Bloody Scotland, the crime writing festival held in Stirling each autumn.
This is where I write about what I'm reading, where I'm going, what I'm writing and other random things such as house renovations and the neighbourhood where I live. I also include author interviews, guest posts from bloggers and host occasional book giveaways. See the About Me page for more info.
