Wattys 2023 Winner
Multi-Featured Author
5x Wattys Shortlister
2x ONC Honourable Mention

You can call me August, but I will also be summoned by cool pond bugs and/or pictures of cats.

I'm a queer spec fic writer with a fondness for tossing characters into things they think they aren't prepared for. Most of my work is Dark Fantasy or Horror, but I cross paths with Sci-Fi, Paranormal, and Romance more often than not.

If my books have anything in common, it's wild settings, happy endings, casual rep, and kickass disaster queers being disasters but also kickass!

In the normal world, I work for the UN, wait on two cats, and keep Carassius and Corixidae in outdoor aquaria. I am five years old inside.

I wasn't kidding about the pond bugs.

If you still have questions, my DMs are open, or you can drop a post on my wall. I don't bite :)

Books with a rainbow sticker have a queer main character.

While many of my characters are POC, I am white. Please extend any diversity-related opportunities to authors of colour.
