Hi, everyone!

I'm Solnishka (or just Sol) and I'm a college student. I'm majoring in English with a dream of becoming a professor someday, and in my free time I like to write fiction. Below are some creation notes on the stories I'm working on. If you want to see updates about my writing life and what's going on, please check out my WordPress blog.

Worth Writing Down (upcoming)

I would highly recommend reading this on my WordPress blog instead of here. WWD is (loosely speaking) historical fiction, and on WordPress I can link my sources at the end of the chapter and attach illustrations/photographs/etc—which I plan to do.

WWD started out as a fanfiction of the movie King Arthur (2004). You can read the fanfiction version under my account on (I have the same username there). Because the movie utilizes a decent number of historical elements, I started researching Arthurian myths and the Anglo-Saxon invasion of Britain, and I got really into it—so much so that I started itching to completely revamp the plot and characters of the movie. At that point, I realized I should just write my own story, and so "Worth Writing Down" was born. This will be a big project; I'm estimating a minimum of 70,000 words but am expecting more.

I am plunging pretty deep into the world of scholarly reference material for this story. If you can, please consider taking a look at my patreon (soon to be available via WordPress) and consider becoming a patron so that I can afford more books, maps, and atlases.

Beneath the Surface

Again, I would recommend reading this one on WordPress—because it has an illustration! How exciting!

BtS deals with some very heavy mental health and family topics, so if you feel the need to reach out to someone after reading any section of it, please feel free to PM me. I wrote the first chapter based upon feelings I've experienced in the past, so I understand and will do my best to help.

Beneath the Surface reviews
Cathy, a suicidal teen struggling with acute depression, is given a gift that opens her eyes to the worlds of magic and the fey that lurk beneath the surface of her rural Vermont town. Balancing the magical and the mundane is no easy feat, however, especially when the magic is as sharp as a sword-blade and twice as deadly.
