In short, I'm a coffee snob, dog lover, bookworm, inkslinger (just a fancy word for writer), girl with a dragon tattoo, and proud introvert and I write about:

mental health

Why? It's something all of us are more aware of whether or not we deal with mental health issues, and this includes stuff veering into the field of psychology and neuroscience cuz I'm interested in that sort of stuff too.

grief and loss

Why? It's something all of us go through, and something I've been through a lot in the last 6 years, so that's why I write about it.


Why? I'm a yoga and meditation teacher and have a daily yoga and meditation practice so mindfulness (and things like gratitude) are big parts of my life


Why? Because first and foremost I'm a fiction lover. I write short stories about steampunk/dystopian/post apocalyptic stuff mainly. Zombies, the world falling apart, fantasy creatures, general creepiness (though I don't think of myself as a horror writer).


Why? Because random stuff sometimes pops into my head and I want to write about it. From folklore about vampires, the future of stuff, life musings, sometimes about Medium, quotes, self-improvement and inspirational stuff, dogs. A hodge-podge.


Why? Because poetry.

follow me?

Why? Well, I'd like to think that if you like the topics above, you'd be interested in what I write! (and if so, thank you in advance!).
