I write YA sci-fi/horror/speculative fiction and sundry short stories. I used to write romance, so you'll find a little bit of each of those here. 

I'm a Wattpad Star, and I recently completed a creative writing mentorship program at university, so writing is my life, basically, even though I didn't start writing in earnest until I turned thirty. (I'll never hit a "30 under 30" list, but I'm okay with it.) My best adivce? It's never too late to go back to school, start a novel, or learn a new craft. :)

My story, GIRL UNDER CONSTRUCTION, is part of the Paid Stories program. You can unlock chapters by purchasing coins or watching ads. I appreciate your support! ❤

My short story THE CURSE OF THE FAIRY QUEEN was on the 2018 Wattys shortlist.

My current WIPs are GLITCH, a contemporary YA novel about time loops and first love, and THE LUNAR PLOT, a NaNoWriMo sci-fi/horror about space aliens, because apparently I like to genre-hop.
