Writer, reader, confidante. 

I'm a loner, a keeper of secrets, and a wimpy writer with big dreams. If I had to describe myself, I would probably say I'm a hummingbird...furiously fluttering just to stay in one place, most of the time.

Currently writing as if my life depends on it. Fully intent on stopping the excuses once and for all. Hoping to publish my debut novel at the end of 2021. Meanwhile writing short stories and practicing my craft whilst documenting my journey and blogging about it.


If you would like me to read your work, I am happy to do so - as long as you respect the following:

1. Please don't message me requests to read your work IF you have no interest in me/ my work. I am here to connect with like-minded people and share stories...not just to make the numbers go up!

2. I work a full-time job and write on top of that. Time for reading is scarce. Please don't expect me to read your work immediately. If I say 'yes', I will do it at soon as I can...but it might take a few days. Please don't keep sending reminders! If I can't read your work I will tell you upfront.

3. I always prioritize reading the works of my followers...that's only fair. So, if you are not prepared to follow me, don't be offended if I choose not to read your work in favor of reading others'.

4. I DON'T LIKE to read erotica, romance, gore, cozy mystery, literary fiction, poetry. Please don't ask me to read in these genres. I am not your target reader. Sometimes stories in these genres do intrigue me...but rarely!

5. I LOVE to read fantasy, dark fantasy, adventure stories, SciFi, and action stories. Please DO ask me to read in these genres.

I have received a large number of cold-call messages to read random books in the past few weeks and mostly from people who are NOT followers and who DON'T read my work... it's annoying. Please spam somebody else.

Also, I mute spam followers (inactive followers who only follow to get a follow back).

Happy Sunday! It's update time my dears! Hope you enjoy the latest chapter and that my chosen way of getting Rinn back on land (and back on track with her mission) is at least acceptable if not also...
