Who’s Willow?

I have great fears. I’m terrified of guns. I’m terrified of heights, so I write about bridge-builders and gunfighters.

Willow H. Wood is the real name of a real person who does too much. Born in Aylesbury on a Royal Air Force base, she spent her younger years hopping from one primary school to the next until her family eventually settled in Dorset.

She wrote her first ‘novel’ at age eleven, which was basically a Buffy knock-off featuring herself and her best friend. Willow later learnt this is called ‘fan fiction’. Creative writing, journalism, and the performing arts have always been her calling, and this became apparent at seven years old when she memorised and performed all of Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes for her grandmother in the middle of a Greek restaurant.

She’s a screenwriting graduate who spent her entire upper school life training for dance and theatre until fibromyalgia set in and, gradually but surely, literally knocked her off her dancing feet. Luckily, writing does not require a Siobhan Davies interpretive performance during the creative process.

Willow has been an associate editor and audiobook narrator for Big World Network for four years, and a voice actor in a variety of projects like the unofficial dubbing of Nintendo’s “Earthbound”. She’s a journalist for MYM Buzz at London Comic Con, where she interviews voice actors, game developers, TV stars and more. She’s also been a news writer for The Gallifrey Times!

To be honest, Willow just wants to write sci-fi/fantasy novels and speak in silly voices until she dies. She’s currently trying to learn how to crochet little cats. If you follow her on instagram you’ll see countless photos of her actual cat, Kupo, and artsy shots of tea, because she used to be a Tea Merchant’s Assistant in order to pay the bills and as such developed a passion for the incredible flavours of unblended tea. Willow has so many tins of tea it’s like an extravaganza when friends come over.
