I'm black, queer , and neurodivergent: autistic, OCD, and possibly ADHD as well. My pronouns are ey/em and they/them.
I was a very avid reader as a child, which later turned into a desire to write and be published. I attempted my first novel at fourteen, but later scrapped it. I struggled for years to flesh out and finish a novel, until I realized plotting just wasn't for me, and leaned more into pantsing and "gardening," a form of explaratory writing.
And it worked! I was able to finish my first novel in 2021. I've since applied that same method to my other novels and have found great success that way. Now that I have the rhythm down, I may be able to churn out a novel or novella two-three times a year, depending on work and other responsibilities.
When I'm not writing, I'm hanging out with my girlfriend and our cat, Lily. Or I'm gaming, reading, or listening to music or podcasts. I love hiking too, but have to be mindful of my allergies!
I'm not really active on social media, but you can find me on Mastodon.
queer For me, that includes: agender, aplatonic, demiromantic, demisexual, lesbian, and trans. ↩︎
