current projects:

less than three

available now!

Ren has been in love with his best friend for the past three years. He has no intention of confessing, but he can't seem to move on.
Calliope has spent most of her life dancing. She's decided to put other interests before it now, but it's hard to let go of something she fought so hard for.
Ingrid plans to start over in college, to go beyond what held her back in high school. It's much easier in theory than in practice.

Less Than Three is a collection of three short stories about a group of friends. Together, they shoulder their way through romance, all-nighters, and the occasional dragon.

note: print versions are currently only available to buy through amazon. sorry for the inconvenience!

pirates and politics

book one: being edited

Rade is second in line for the throne. They pretend to follow the rules and sneak out of sword fighting lessons to read in the library. They make their sister smile as she stresses over her upcoming engagement. Their parents are almost unbearable, but they're making do.

Then they get kidnapped.

A trilogy about royalty, pirates, politics, and learning how to create a better world.

status details:
‣ book one: draft 5, incomplete
‣ book two: rough outline
‣ book three: rough ideas
‣ zine: possibly still coming

information on pirates can be found across my social media with the hashtag #piratesandpolitics

the poptart theory


“I have this theory,” Zane says, “that all poptarts taste better when they’ve been toasted. Aside from strawberry, that is. Can’t improve on good original perfection.”

Jere was already depressed before the world ended.
Now he and his friends have to travel cross-country with only a map and a demon cat before the unleashed magic poisons the people they love.

status details:
‣ compete
‣ currently querying/applying to mentorship programs with this project
‣ still editing (we're always editing)

if you are interested in being a beta reader* or a critique partner**, dm me on any of my social media for details!

* you read through the story and give me your thoughts! i may ask some questions, but beta readers are used to get a feel for what readers will think about the story! NOT the same as an editor and NOT paid

** we exchange manuscripts and offer each other advice and edits! each partnership is different, so we can definitely discuss if you're interested!

One thousand three hundred eighty-three days ago, Liam asked Jaz out between the cafeteria vending machine and a trash can. One hundred fifteen days ago, they blocked each other’s numbers. The apocalypse starts in three, two, one—
