To write is to set you free. I love to write and it’s been something I've been doing for a long time.I write poetry and as a whole my interest lies in literature. I have just started writing my own novel and it’s a story that revolves around the idea of power, greed and jealousy. I’m a great fan of writers like John Milton, Rumi, Salman Rushdie, Mario Puzo, and Mark Twain. I'm also studying law at Coventry University.
