My name is Amber JS Hart, and I am 20 years old. I live in England, and am studying for a psychology degree at the University of Surrey. I am also a Youth Worker for young people with mild to severe developmental and learning disabilities.
I am a proud member of the Gothic subculture. This does not mean I am "dark and depressive" as the common stereotypes attached to our name tend to be false. I associate with the Victorian and Romantic branches most of all.
I am a proud supporter of the S.O.P.H.I.E (Stamp Out Prejudice, Hatred and Intolerance Everywhere) charity, in memory of Sophie Lancaster, who was a young Goth who was murdered due to ignorance of our society, which is an issue that directly relates to me in every way.
Fighting prejudice and improving society is something I have been fighting for my whole life, and as such, is a common influence or theme in not just my personality, but my writings and behaviours.
I am a webcomic author/artist, but am, first and foremost, a writer.
My primary literary inspirations are: Edgar Allan Poe, HP Lovecraft and Stephen King.
I would love to be a well-known Gothic Literature author, and would very much enjoy hearing feedback and constructive criticism.
I am very easy to get along with, so feel free to drop me a line :)
