I write for free, but if you like my writing and want to show some support, you can buy me a coffee at: buymeacoffee[dot]com/dearllama :)

FictionPress now doesn't support a lot of links, so I will always replace the . in links with [dot]. Please edit accordingly. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Find me and my writing on my other sites! I post a lot of excerpts and quotes, as well as upcoming projects I'm working on. Other than writing, I draw a little, so I like to draw my own book covers as well. Follow me to see me working on all the new creative projects that come to my mind. There are a lot of those, because I like to do things on a whim :P

My self-published short-story eBook (The Rapihi Chronicles) is now available for free! (Find the download-links at books2read[dot]com/rapihi1)

And I'm currently working on other book projects, including an upcoming eBook (also going to be free and a little silly) in Dec 2019. I will be blogging about my progress on my website, if anyone's interested.


As of August 2019, I've self-published my very first eBook of a silly little short story about a toy dragon and his adventures with his humans called The Rapihi Chronicles. You can get it for free at most major eBook retailers (just google the title), including Google Books! It's also on Amazon but costs $0.99 on there currently; I'm trying to make it permanently free eventually so please help me to "report a lower price" on the Amazon website if you happen to go on there.

The story is really kind of silly and not like other things I've written, so I'm embarrassed of it, yet I'm proud because it's the first thing I've made into a legit eBook and illustrated as well. So please check it out if you like reading my writing!


So... believe it or not, I'm a librarian now. HAHA. I like my job and my colleagues, but it's also being at this job that makes me realise, I don't want to work for someone else forever. And I'm not one of those entrepreneurs, I don't want to start my own company or anything. The only thing I want to do is write. And so! I shall return to writing. I've stopped because of the aforementioned things that happened. I guess I can talk about them now: my beloved dog died, then my dad got cancer and after a hard battle died as well, in between all that I had my heart broken by the Finnish guy I wrote Something Better about, and also the reason I had to take the sequel to that down because I couldn't handle writing it anymore, and eventually near mid-2017 I also got diagnosed with depression. All in all, it's been a few eventful years.

But now I'm ready to start writing again, and, when the time comes, publish my works. If you read my stories, please review and give me some feedback, thanks!


I don’t know if anyone still even reads my stories, but I have been posting little snippets on my twitter and tumblr accounts more lately. I’ve also been trying to write but a lot of things have happened in my life and things are a little difficult and not so conducive to creating right now... I still do want to write and get published someday though. For those who still read my works, thanks so much for doing so. I hope to post again soon.


This year, I have decided to move away from one-shots and try my hand at finishing my first novel! It's called Auld Lang Syne and it's about a group of estranged friends who are reunited after 3 years... Of course there's going to be a good dose of romance and drama thrown into the mix. Working on a novel is going to be a little hard, since I've only ever written one-shots (mostly), so... Wish me luck! :D

I'm going to be writing a lot more this year, so do watch out for new works! I'll definitely still be writing one-shots too.

I found out a while back that some of my stories are featured on A Drop of Romeo. A big thank you to whoever submitted them! Here are the links: Blue Eyes, Hab Dich Lieb, Facebook Official, Fades In The Summer and Auld Lang Syne! Facebook Official was also nominated for Best One-Shot in Round 12 of SKoW Awards.

You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories. If people wanted you to write warmly about them, they should have behaved better.
- Anne Lamott

If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.
- Thoreau

We must do extraordinary things. We have to. It would be absurd not to.
- Dave Eggers

I am not sure that I exist, actually. I am all the writers that I have read, all the people that I have met, all the women that I have loved; all the cities I have visited.
- Jorge Luis Borges

Auld Lang Syne reviews
CH.10 UP! After Nik left four years ago, the group splintered. But now he's back, forcing a reunion between six ex-friends who could've been strangers, but not quite. Temporarily goaded into close proximity, old hatchets get unburied and unresolved tensions rise again. And, as Tamy comes to realise, four years can change everything but the things that matter.

The Cool Type of Supernatural reviews
[Halloween Short Story] "It's a ghoul!" I whispered furiously into the phone. "That's not even the cool type of supernatural!" If you could go on a blind date with any type of supernatural, you would not have chosen Ben. But, as it turns out, dinner with a ghoul might not be the worst thing in the world.

Where I Learn From My Mistakes reviews
One-shot. Who do you choose, when you find yourself caught up in a love triangle despite your best intentions? The boy your heart beats for – or the friend you've stood by for so long? Sometimes the choices you face aren't so clear-cut.

One-shot. They were best friends growing up, until that summer full of mistakes they couldn't fix. Now, he's the boy who never dates; she's the girl that all the boys cheat with. And they're both clutching onto the pieces of their sanity in the only way they know how.

(Fades in the Summer spin-off - Dylan's POV) One-shot. I know she wonders how long love born out of guilt lasts. I don't know, but I wonder how long guilt born out of love lasts.

Because We Believe in Fairytales reviews
One-shot. In all the movies, all the books, they like to wax poetry about how beautiful a romance between best friends can be. But what they leave out is the part about how letting go may be the hardest lesson to learn of all.

Hab Dich Lieb reviews
EDITED one-shot. When you leave town at the age of eighteen, there is usually a reason. Returning five years later is generally not seen as a good idea, especially when the townspeople subscribe to small-town racism and you’re engaged to the enemy.

Blue Eyes reviews
One-shot. "What's wrong?" Before I knew it, he had placed himself squarely in my path. And – dare I say it – he actually sounded a little angry and hurt. "Why are you not stalking me anymore?"

Presumptions reviews
One-shot. She thought he was a stain on the family tree. He thought she was the perfect match for his snob-of-a-brother. Negative first impressions on a deserted highway at 2 A.M. ––and the worst part was, they could've had each other at 'hello'.
