I am a novelist, a poet, a playwright, and a reader. Several of my scripts have been performed and I have written two novels.

Message from Writer

Words are my life and art-form. As a writer, I aspire to be a cross between Margaret Atwood, Maggie Stiefvater, and John Green. With a touch of Taylor Swift. I believe that reading should first and foremost be for enjoyment but also serve as a way to explore the big, existential questions of what it is to be human. I aim to do this through threading common experiences with fantastical imaginings of what life could be like. Grit and magic. So that my readers can connect, but also dream through my words and be given the hope that we all can have fairy tale endings, no matter how terrible the world seems to be. We can always hide in books, but it is an author's ultimate goal to bring those fictional worlds to life

PROMPT: That Sort of Person

He's the boy who used to cover up his heartbreak with a smile and now is a man too tired to smile even when his heart is whole. 



He's the boy who used to dream about having the world and now is a man too saddened by the world to want it.

The Tesla Effect

PROMPT: Speechwriting Competition 2020

I really enjoyed seeing someone talk on one specific facet of the climate crisis, rather than just a vague speech on the entire issue, so props for that! As a young person for whom the climate crisis is the most...

Sweat, Blood, and Dreams for You

PROMPT: People Power!

You abstain, out of a tired belief perhaps that it will change nothing because you don't matter.

But that's not true.

In a world where money seems to be king, voting is its own kind of currency. 

Bought by the sweat, blood, and dreams of those before us. 

You've heard that voting is a right and a privilege, but it is also a duty. 

To your country, to the next generation, to all those in the world who never even...

veins full of ink and bones made of dreams

PROMPT: Why I Write

I write because my soul is made out of words. Ink runs through my veins. Blazing dreams harden into creamy bones. To know me is to read my words. My lyrics, my prose, my creatures. 
Some say to write what you know. Others say to write what you want to know. I do both. I write to reflect and mourn and celebrate who I've been. I write to understand and wonder and enjoy who I am. I write to predict...

Great work so far! I especially enjoyed your paragraph on women in politics, since I plan to be one myself someday! It is definitely a struggle to make sure that women have adequate representation in government. Women make up half...

Screw Someday

PROMPT: Speechwriting Competition 2020

When I go into an interview, I don’t begin my introduction by recounting all of my most embarrassing moments and mistakes. Because I want to impress this person; for them to think I’m smart and competent. When I go to restaurants, I don’t sit on the table. Because that would be rude and disruptive to the people around me. And when I meet someone I find annoying, I don’t tell them how I dislike their behaviour or that the last...
