Hey there! I'm a lesbian writer, handcrafting artisanal LGBT stories of every stripe of the rainbow. Though I write fantasy, I try to write from the emotional experiences of myself and my friends making a more genuine experience.

I WILL NEVER...

- Kill queer characters permanently. Ever.
- Romanticize abuse.
- Write a rape scene or sexual assault.
- Write gratuitous gay agony (My pet name for when gay characters just agonize over the fact that they might be gay for ages and ages with very little actual resolution.)

If anything is tagged mature here it's because there's good, old-fashioned consensual sex. And maybe some blood and gore. I try to leave content warnings accordingly, but I'm so desensitized to violence some of the gore kinda slips between my fingers.

My books strive to be a fun escape for other queer people, not exploitative or generic displays of token diversity. If I fuck up, don't be afraid to tell me.
