My Bio
We are Latimer and Ridley- two girls, best friends and most importantly eccentrics and fan-girls of the highest order!

We are co-authors, with one shared dream - to write, write and write some more!
We're aiming to create lots of fan-girl worthy, young adult, urban fantasy stories - think, romance, adventure, mystery and magic - with lots of strange happenings and quirky characters :)!

We draw, we write, we listen, we squee (sometimes all at once)!

We have a group too if you are interested, please check us out in our strange urban fantasy town :) :iconcarwick-central:
