About Me
I am a small town girl from Alabama living in the big city. I love Atlanta and feel inspired by the diversity of culture and uniqueness of the people I meet here. I've been writing for fun since early childhood and writing semi-professionally since early adulthood. I've worked as a ghostwriter, freelance editor, and manga proofreader in the past. I've won a handful of contests and have had some work accepted in local publications but nothing of note. I hope to change that.
Type of Writer
I've mostly written poetry and short fiction over the past few years, but I'm looking to open myself up to other things.
Writing Style
My style has been influenced by these genres: Classic Literature, Southern Gothic, Urban/Dark Fantasy, Psychological Horror
I'm interested in Asian culture and language. My husband is Thai-American and I get a healthy exposure to Thai language, culture, and FOOD through him. I love playing online MMOs and puzzle games. I enjoy any activity that allows me to be creative.

There is something pagan in me that I cannot shake off. In short, I deny nothing, but doubt everything. Lord Byron
Favorite Music
I enjoy a wide range of music...from 80s synth and goth rock, to folk/indie, to festival trap/edm...as long as it inspires me or makes me feel something inside, I can dig it.
