About meI'm a freelance copyeditor by day and a fiction writer also by day. My boss is a fluffy black cat named Ryuu who demands cuddles regularly. I'm a queer feminist christian seeking change and trying to listen better.
I'm addicted to SFF anime--the gayer the better! Other pastimes include hiking, binge-reading queer fantasy, learning yet another language, attempting Beethoven's sonatas, and absorbing green tea through my pores.

Writing projectsMy current novel in progress is a diverse YA fantasy in the vein of Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn and Amy Bai's Sword. Incarra, a 16-year-old trans girl, is called upon by the priests to lead the war for her people's freedom. Problem is, she's a pacifist.
My last project, still in the editing room, is about a Japanese girl abducted by Chinese pirates who plan to feed her to a holy dragon.
About the BlogThis is where I talk about good books, queerness, mental health, and other important stuff. This is a safe space.
I came out in 2015. For my queer story, check out the Queerness & Christianity tab.
In 2006, I was in a really dark place dealing with sexual abuse, PTSD, and depression. It was through my experiences with attempted suicide that I came to trust and have an active relationship with the Jesus-God-man. Nevertheless, I've learned a lot from from others' beliefs and freely acknowledge even the few things I hold certain could be complete bullshit. I identify as an unfundie.
More than anything, my faith leads me to listening in hope of learning.
