I’m a Juv/YA writer and a lover of twisted fairy tales (particularly of the undersea variety, and especially with queer main or major characters). Bring me your merrow, your selkies, your undines, your ciguapas! Take me over the rainbow, under the sea, into the land of the unicorns, through the Castle Waiting, and across the candy corn fields of Nonsense! The scent of my magic is Sweet Tarts and freshly ground coffee.
I don’t usually label books by target age here. This blog may have started with a focus on books officially marketed to children and teens, but I believe any story can appeal to any reader, and a person is never too old or (for the most part) too young for a story. I may occasionally mention target audiences if they’re relevant, and I’ll warn of language or concepts better suited to mature readers. In the end, though, I believe readers are savvy enough to choose their own adventures.
