I am a Queer Author who features LGBT and POC characters as the leading roles in my stories. I believe representation is so important for readers of all ages and as a gay male I wish I had grown up with more characters who looked, dressed, talked, and loved like me. That is my goal: to write quality stories in multiple genre's with a TRULY diverse cast of characters so that everyone knows that they can be the hero who saves the world, or the chosen one, or the romantic lead who actually gets a happy ending and the prince or princess in the end.
I am also a traditional ink illustrator and like to create images that invoke a true sense of the feeling of my worlds and characters and allow the reader to fill in the blanks.
I have done work in Children's literature with stories that allow children to vocalize things they are afraid to say or don't know how to say. I have worked alongside Child therapists and psychologists while working on each book and my works are used by Child Therapists throughout Illinois.
If you have been looking for works that have characters who look and love like you, in settings of action, fantasy, and sci-fi, I hope you find what you have been looking for in my current and future works.
