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, bike a lot, and keep Carassius and Corixidae in outdoor aquaria. I am five years old inside.

I wasn't kidding about the pond bugs.

✣ ┅ BOOKS ┅ ✣

I have a lot of books. For update schedules, quick synopses, series order, and more, check out the doc below─it should have the most up-to-date info!


I'm also on Patreon, with exclusive books and bonus content:


For administrative news, blog posts, and general chaos, see the profile-updates book in my first reading list.

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



The completion status of all my books can be found in their titles (if posted):

✔ = Complete (17)
❖ = Updating Now (2)
❍ = Preparing to Update (0)
✐ = Currently Writing (5)

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.

Comments and critiques are both welcome and appreciated.
