A First Novel
I’ve written several novel-length fanworks in the past, and I fell in love with writing narratives. The experience gave me a chance to engage my favorite characters in new and exciting ways. I learned the ins and outs of story-telling, both from the creators that inspired me and from my fans’ comments.
Now that I’m embarking on a fully original story for the first time, I’m beyond thrilled to share my progress with all of you! I’m also excited to offer some little sneak peeks here and there to show you what I’m working on.
