Bittersweet Endings in Bleak Worlds


Hello, and welcome to The Black Castle.

I write strong female leads in grim settings. I deal heavily with the topics of mental illness and queer identity, and my works feature themes of disaffection and social alienation. I am an outsider looking in, and so are all of my protagonists.

I have greatly enjoyed putting together this body of work, and I hope that you enjoy reading it.
