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.

My stories:

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 Bee's Knees (Quit Bugging Me sequel) - complete offline, new chapters every Friday!

Reindeer James (Complete) - Lower middle grade fantasy story full of festive fun

The Taste of Home (Complete) - Adult paranormal romance focusing on a chupacabra chef

Camp Antler Point (Complete) - Young adult summer camp horror with an #ownvoices protagonist

Unhealthy Coping Mechanism (Complete) - Tragic adult horror/magical realism story featuring a bisexual lead and lots of stress baking

Beastly Little Boy (Complete) - Upper middle grade wilderness survival fantasy, former featured story

Sirens and Sprinkles (Complete) - Goofy adult contemporary focusing on a prank war over doughnuts

Works in progress:
