In short

  • I am an aspiring novelist and a poet (though I've not written anything other than freestyle poetry beyond the walls of my eighth grade English classroom).

    My novels are (or will be once they're completed) set in fictional worlds, alternate realities and varying timelines.

    My poems are drawn from my own life experiences, thoughts and feelings. I've always been afraid of criticism due to the personal nature of my various works and, for the majority of my life, I've only ever shared what I've written with those close to me.  Until now.
