My YA scifi series has just been optioned for film/TV, while the first book has been published in English and Russian, and about to be released in Mandarin Chinese! Find out how I got here, and come with me on the next chapter of my adventure as the author of 'Generation Icarus' - which, before it was signed by the first publisher, earned over 1.5M total reads on Wattpad and reached the top rankings in Science Fiction. Part blog, part autobiography, all true.

The only NonFiction book shortlisted for the Wattys 2017!

This sentence is made a million times better knowing that in maybe 45 minutes I'm going have boarded my plane and seen the sunrise and fly up to touch the face of the sun, Like Icarus

I used to love reading books irl but then I found wattpad so I stopped 😂 but now it's got to a point where I crave to read a book made out of paper and actually own the brook I'll love to read

I love my paper but fanfic doesn't come printed like that so I'll read whatever I feel like reading on a whim lol
