About Me

My earliest attempts at writing outside of school were fan fiction, though I didn't know that term at the time. I discovered online fandoms when I was in high school, and since then writing and sharing fan fiction has been a steady hobby, helping me both improve my craft and connect with other fans. In college I studied communications, literature, and various forms of creative writing, among other things. I am now technically a professional writer.

I believe the primary purpose of fiction is to help people examine and better understand reality. For this reason, I try to relate my thoughts and emotions about fictional characters to real people in similar situations, and I encourage my readers to do the same.

I have experience as a writing tutor. I am a stickler about spelling, grammar, and punctuation. It is my habit to point out such errors when I leave reviews, and I appreciate when readers do the same for my work. Please point out my errors so I can remedy them as soon as possible!

I have the same username on other websites that I use primarily for fandom-related activities, including Archive Of Our Own, DeviantArt, and Tumblr.

My profile picture is the symbols and names of the four authors of the Gospels. I found the image at Son of Thunder Historical Apologetics on blogspot . com.

I am willing to trade my written work for art work to go with my stories.

I do not participate in role-play forums.


About My Stories

A novella has 17,500 to 40,000 words.

A short story cycle is a collection of short stories that can be read separately, but have a common element (such as a theme, character, or group of characters), giving them deeper meaning when read together.

Canon-compliant means not changing or contradicting anything in the official storyline.
