I have always had a love of the written word and have expressed this love in various formats from poetry to fanfiction to screenplays to novels. I’m also an avid reader, consuming between 2 and 4 books per week. I like testing genre boundaries and have no qualms about jumping over them, experimenting and having fun with it. I refuse to be pigeonholed into a set of ‘rules’ that someone else has made up for a genre. I like all genres for different reasons, but Romance, Space Opera and LGBT Fiction are my favorite. I also enjoy post apocalyptic, well-written high fantasy and the classics.
