Misa believes that while getting older is unavoidable, growing up is a different matter. She loves sci fi shows, unicorns, superhero movies, stationery, stickers, and has a steadily-increasing collection of washi tape.

She also loves doughnuts, though she’s less keen on what they do to her waistline.

A keen crafter, she has a small creative business – Misassortments – through which she sells crochet and jewellery inspired by surf and stars. She also writes sci fi romance and is currently working at rebuilding her back list.

Misa lives near Bolton in the UK with her husband, their grown-up children, and a mad dog called Abby.
