Francesca Tyer

My name is Francesca Tyer and I am the founder of the Untold Stories Academy. 

I am a young adult fantasy author, workshop facilitator, editor and writing mentor. I am passionate about helping writers at all stages of their journey. 

When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, walking, baking, and playing music. My favourite book (one of them anyway) is All Our Broken Idols by Paul Cooper. I enjoy walks with a view, my favourite cake to bake is lemon drizzle (and to eat), and I play violin and piano. I also enjoy gardening and spending time with family.
