She/her, demiromantic ace, technical editor and Wattpad Creator with cerebral palsy

When it comes to fiction, I primarily write fantasy stories for both adults and children, often involving animals, baking, and tons of puns. I also dabble in other genres from time to time, and have posted hundreds of bite-sized poems that are the perfect read if you only have a minute to spare.

My short stories and poems have appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Bronzeville Bee, Cicada, Short Édition, and various other publications. I'm a proud member of Rainbow Book Club, Dreamland Raid, Dreamland Rush, and Dreamland Hunt. I'm also a Dream Catcher for the Dreamland Community and the founder of the Triple A Community.

Rat Song (ongoing, complete offline) - Horror retelling of the Pied Piper

Quit Bugging Me (Complete) - Lighthearted lower middle grade fantasy with animals galore and a dash of LGBT, formerly featured as Community Curator pick, Editors' Choice, and Fresh Reads, Ambys 2022 winner in Children's Fiction

The last chapter of Rat Song is finally up! I obviously can't talk about it too much here for spoiler reasons, but it's safe to say this is the most I've fussed over a chapter in quite a while. When...
