22 year old engineer who likes math, science, and problem solving, but also reading a five book series back-to-back in a weekend. And now, writing my own too! I've never thought of myself as a writer, but I've always had stories in my head just begging to be told. Maybe if I write them down, they'll let me have some peace. :)

I'm not exactly a fan-fic writer, but pretty much every story I've written (or entertained in my imagination) has been inspired by other pieces of media, including TV shows, music, movies, and other books. My works fall on a scale from thinly-veiled fan-fiction (like the HTTYD-inspired short story I wrote in eighth grade) to mostly original pieces that retain a few elements from the (often obscure) source material. If anyone guesses the TV show that originally inspired Requiem for a Soldier, I'll be well and truly shocked.

I try to update weekly, but I'm starting my master's degree in the spring, so I'm trying to get my next book out as quickly as possible. For daily(ish) updates on how that's going, check my Instagram.

Requiem for a Soldier ~ YA/NA romance, first full length novel I've ever written, completed, and WON the 2019 Watty Awards (still can't believe this)

Requiem for a Love ~ book 2 in the Requiem series and updates as often as I write enough to publish new chapters :)

|Short Stories|
Escape to the Forbidden Isles ~ fourteen year old me's HTTYD fan fic

Sons of Sparta ~ fifteen year old me's Ancient Greece historical fiction story

Greek Myth of the Jeweled Sky ~ sixteen year old me's original Greek myth

|Upcoming, yet Unpublished Drafts|
So many. Too many. Maybe I'll have more time to work on them some day (she says while preparing to start working on a Masters degree in aerospace engineering while working 40 hours a week)

I've pretty much fallen off the NaNoWriMo bandwagon at this point, but I still have Chapter 8 for you all on time :)
