About Me:


I have been on Fictionpress literally forever—since middle school (for some perspective, I have since passed through high school, college, and will now be starting law school). Basically, by the standards of this website, I am old. I've always loved writing, but I don't think it's a coincidence that I started doing it more frequently with much more follow through after I joined Fictionpress. So thank you FP.

In addition to writing, I love reading even more, especially well-written works with strong female protagonists (which is what I aspire to produce, of course). I'm an avid traveller and have been everywhere from Portugal to Poland to Pakistan and spent a significant part of this year studying Arabic in Morocco.

In between the whole "being a lawyer" thing, I hope to be a published novelist someday soonish. Don't we all? I also love getting messages (although I'm a slow responder) so if you want to ask any questions or talk about anything related to my stories or send critiques, please feel free to submit a review or a PM!

The Ascending Dawn

Editing/writing. You know the drill.


The Prince's Courtesan

Done for now, but I like to think that sometime far, far in the future, I can revisit and remold this story to something more like "The Ascending Dawn." Still up in case anyone wants to read some truly bad circa eighth grade writing.



Court Spy

Unfinished, still done, put to bed, good bye. Still up in case anyone wants to see the product of hilariously terrible seventh grade plotting.
