Hi! I guess I get to call myself a Wattpad old timer by now, which is pretty sweet. Sweet...do the kids still say that these days?

I'm both a writer and a reader on Wattpad, although I'm a pretty picky reader on this site. I write primarily Fantasy and Teen Fic, both with significant helpings of Romance (usually between two dudes. If you happen to be one of the two readers who once DM'd me expressing their shock that my sword-wielding, foul mouthed boys wanted to make out with other boys, all I can say is that the giant rainbow on my profile really should've tipped you off.)

If you've read my work, I'd love to hear what you think of it! The good, the bad and the ugly. I should note that I'm primarily interested in feedback on Imalroc. Beginnings, my fluffy little foray into Teen Fiction, was the first thing I ever finished, so I love it and keep it posted, but it's not the focus of revision. If you're interested in doing critique exchanges for Imalroc, let me know! I'm especially interested in reading Fantasy with LGBTQ+ elements.

Books/authors I love and recommend:

FANTASY
Captive Prince Trilogy by C.S. Pacat
The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo
A Land Fit For Heroes series by Richard K. Morgan

REALISTIC FIC (YA and Adult)
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli
The People in the Trees by Hanya Yanagihara
The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

NONFICTION
Seabiscuit by Laura Hillenbrand
In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson
Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City by Matthew Desmond
White Rage by Carol Anderson

I love talking to fellow writers and readers, so if you want to talk craft, books, or ice cream, drop a message on my board or send a DM!
