Thanks for visiting my little corner of Wattpad! All my works are complete and 100% free of charge! 💃

MASK OF CELIBACY won Best Cover, Best YA, and the Wattpad Books Prize! Huge thanks to Wattpad and my readers.

I wrote MASK OF CELIBACY while questioning my own asexuality. I hope it can help both younger and older people avoid the confusion and doubt I experienced for over twenty years. You are not alone! 🖤🤍💜
