She/her, demiromantic ace, technical editor 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 Pretty In Punk Book Club, The Pride Club, and Dreamland Hunt.

Feel free to PM me if you want to do a read for read!

My stories:

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

Moose on the Loose (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
