⁂ Hey there! I'm Gavin, 26, Wattpad Star, 5x featured author, big lover of Disney, Pixar, Harry Potter, and American television shows. I'm gay and I love writing stories with LGBTQ+ characters and themes. My first LGBTQ+ novel, Heart of the Sky (aka Gay Titanic), won the Watty Award for the Heartbreakers category in 2018!

I wrote stories for the app, Tap, in 2017, including the 'Babysitter' series, the 'Hangman' series, 'Behind the Veil', Universal Studios-commissioned 'Insidious: Into the Further', Watty Award-nominated 'Down the Hallway', and much more. My stories currently have over 145 million views.

In real life, I'm an Ambassador for Reach Out Volunteers and a Bookseller at Waterstones! Nothing's impossible. Dreams come true. ♥
