Layla Cray

Writing Student

Location icon United Kingdom

20-year-old Layla Cray fell into writing recently. After dedicating most of her life to the pursuit of an acting career, she felt stagnant and directionless, and so chose to turn to her other great love of fiction. Having been an avid reader since childhood - and an enthusiastic writer throughout her school life - she decided to pick up a pen and figure out what exactly it was about those books that she loved so much.

She currently studies Creative Writing as an undergraduate and hopes to one day do narrative development and writing for games.
