A nurse by day and a writer by night, Elyse Jones is a 24-year-old lover of all things creative from Hamilton, New Zealand. An avid coffee-drinker, foodie, cat lady in the making, and aspiring author, she loves to write about anything and everything that is thrown her way as she makes the journey through young adulthood. Elyse is a self-confessed night-owl and considers herself somewhat of a ‘realist,' hence the title of her Instagram account and creative outlet: nocturnalrealist. Despite taking advantage of technology as a tool for writing, she likes to keep things simple and prefers to map out her thoughts and ideas by way of pen and paper. One day she hopes to write a novel that will resonate with her readers, but until then, she thrives on writing blogs, quotes, excerpts, and immersing herself in the world of arts and music.
