Last year, I wrote a paranormal romance for Halloween. I enjoyed it, and recently decided to give a full-blown horror story a try.

I don't read it and I barely watch it, so I'm suddenly realizing I have some catching up to… Continue reading New Genre, New Anxieties
They say you should read a lot if you want to be a writer. You should read what you want to write. You should read heavily and thoroughly within your genre. I write queer romance. I also write queer scifi, fantasy, urban fantasy, and am now branching out into paranormal and horror a little bit.… Continue reading Read What You Write

I "meh"ed through the past several months of my life. Financial strain, [physical] health issues, yadda yadda yadda. I won't bore you… Continue reading Mental Health and Self-Awareness
Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by even though I've been quiet lately. I've been on an unofficial writing hiatus trying to recover from burning myself out, but I have some thinky thoughts on gender identity right now and I want to put them into words. Since joining Twitter and diving into the queer writer/writing community,… Continue reading Gender is Weird
