Tired girl trying with varying degrees of success to fix her sleep schedule, attitude, et al.
Cynic in theory, optimist in practice. Will rant about: schmaltzy inspirational quotes, romanticism in the wild, misuse of personality type theory, the false dichotomy of planner vs. pantser, and bipartisan politics.
Likes writing bios enough to do it every time the current one no longer seems to reflect her persona. Fighting to maintain wonder in a world of vandalized reverence. Writing for the story, the characters, and the Light.
What you can expect from my stories: Prose written for the joy of cadence, simplicity, and subtext. Family, ordinary people, reconciliation. Characters who make stupid decisions that probably aren't plot holes. A touch of the bittersweet, because one can be sad and not unhappy.
Flare in the Darkness: tragic, elegiac, feat. romance and triangles.
A Cold Cry: i went crazy on the symbolism and the chapters are weirdly short, i am not sorry. someday I will edit
My 'Deia: "What if I wrote the unhappy family history of my protagonist in the Ceristen Series"
Between 2016 and 2018, the four-book Ceristen Series came into being. They're beautiful. They are published, yes, but they were beautiful first. You needn't love them, but you're welcome to check out the excerpts available here.

/We'll see how the tears/
were caught in the palms/
of the Giver of love/
and the Lover of all/
and we'll look back on those tears/
as old tales/
