About Me

 “I love writing. I love the swirl and swing of words as they tangle with human emotions.”

― James Michener

I’m an agender, asexual, and aromantic speculative fiction author and freelance editor. As a child, I dreamily dictated stories to adults and sat at my family’s old typewriter, pounding at the keys to enjoy the sensation of them beneath my fingers. I’ve never lost that sense of wonder. I aim to craft stories that evoke ideas, create experiences, and leave behind lingering emotions.

Aside from writing, I find joy in game design, heavy music, fiction podcasts, technology, and animals. I currently room with three cats and a collie dog, who keep me company during my daily battles with the blank page. As a night person, the majority of my novels emerge under moonlight. I write from a big, lakeside house on a rural island while dreaming of the city.
