Best writing advice I've read:

"Time enough to think and cut and rewrite tomorrow. But today -- explode -- fly apart -- disintegrate! The other six or seven drafts are going to be pure torture. So why not enjoy the first draft in the hope that your joy will seek and find others in the world who, reading your story, will catch fire too?" -- Ray Bradbury

MASK OF CELIBACY won Best Cover, Best YA, and the Wattpad Books Prize! Huge thanks to Wattpad and my readers. I wrote it while questioning my own asexuality. 🖤🤍💜

My mind is mulling over several possibilities for a new book. I want to do something different as a palate cleanser, but I haven't landed on a specific idea yet.
