I wrote my first book when I was twelve after a days-long game of lets-pretend-to-be-dragons with my brother and my friends. It was called "Dragons" and it still sitting, handwritten in a binder, on a shelf somewhere. I devoured hundreds of books in middle school and continued to write through my teenage years and into college. I studied English literature, creative writing, and linguistics at Western Washington University.
In college I honed my craft, made a few life-long friends, and fell in love with an ever growing list of audio drama and TTRPG podcasts.
As a consumer and creator of stories I am always most excited about stories with diverse representation, humor, drama, friendship, and surprises. If it has linguistic nerdery, magical systems and trans/non-binary, asexual, and aromantic representation, then I'm guaranteed to be on board. And you can bet my stories are gonna have all of that a more.
