It's one hell of a journey to be a writer. You go through so many ups and downs, proud one moment, cringing the next. Does this connect with people? Do you laugh like I do when you read these lines? I dunno, I hope I can connect with people out there. That my stories mean something.
I started, as many writers do, delving into fan fiction. You'll see this steady ascent from video game fiction (very fun to write) to stories about boys.
I expect I'll dive through many genres in my life as a writer, but for now, I've just wanted to communicate the real: the everyday brilliance of people, friendships, the hilarious. I like this slice-of-life and the warmth of it. I write LGBT+ books because I didn't get those kinds of stories growing up, the kinds of stories I would love to have read. And as I grow as a writer, to make these stories even more meaningful.
