She works as a technical writer while studying for an MLitt in Theology in the Arts at the University of St. Andrews. Her academic interests include divine encounters in the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, George MacDonald, and Madeleine L’Engle and veil imagery as used to describe the border between the physical and spiritual worlds.
