I've been telling stories since I learned to talk and writing since I could hold a pencil. I write almost exclusively YA fiction, with the odd poem thrown in for fun. The genres I enjoy writing the most are speculative, sci-fi, and fantasy. Or, even better, something that blurs the lines between them.
I was shortlisted for the Writing Award during the 2020 Page Turner Awards. I was also shortlisted during the 2021 Page Turner Awards for the Young Writer's Award, as well as receiving the title of Highly Commended. I've had two short stories published as well.
My future goals include: making people throw books - preferably my books - across the room and writing diverse, inclusive characters. As both a lesbian woman and an autistic one, I know how important it is to see yourself in the media you consume, and how isolating it can be when you don't. I aspire to write books that make queer and neurodivergent teens and young adults feel seen.
When I'm not writing or reading, I spend my time dancing, practicing karate, and thinking about how I should probably be writing instead of watching YouTube.
I respectfully acknowledge the unceded traditional territories of the lək̓ʷəŋən peoples on which I live, and the Songhees, Esquimalt and W̱SÁNEĆ peoples whose historical relationships with the land continue to this day. I am grateful to be able to live and create on these lands.
