Semi-normal high school student. Pen name. First-time writer. Professional procrastinator.

Loves drawing, skiing, eating, sleeping, gelato, pizza, all seasons except spring (yuck), music of all kinds (even pop, not ashamed), documentaries (don't judge), and theatre musicals.

Can sing Les Mis while asleep. Contemplated listing this as special skill.

Huge, gigantic soft spot for middle grade fantasy, plus anything Ally Carter-esque.

In YA, a lover of optimistic endings, stories of friendship (sometimes the love interest should just get out of the picture already. It's not always about you, Jeff!), sweet romances, subtle magic, not-so-subtle magic, anything with strong world building, and stories that don't take themselves too seriously.

Bonus points for weird historical conspiracies, friendly ghosts, space settings, heists, large casts that carry out those heists, or quirky narrative voices. Read enough, yet?

Appreciate suggestions and would love to read your book, 'cause boredom (read requests only taken through PMs). Writing style is under construction, but will get better (hopefully).
