Meet Your Teacher:
My love of writing began in childhood, when I received a diagnosis for expressive language disorder. This meant that I was incapable of expressing myself in the written language or spoken word, like others could do with ease. As a result, I struggled to find my voice. I desperately grasped for the proper words to articulate my feelings, from my first girl crush to the first boy I liked. Poetry was my first avenue of self-expression. It allowed me to finally pen the words I could never speak—at least, not to another person.
Poetry was my personal, internal selfhood given form. This rang true throughout my life; as I grew, so did my writing. In 2016, I was inspired to put together my own poetry book. However, I didn’t actually follow through with that idea until the pandemic occurred in 2020. That’s when “Lit Soul: My Journey Back to Faith” was born.
While creating this collection, I put together personal poetry I had written from childhood to adulthood—my growth and life experiences documented on paper. From there, I wrote a new poem called “Who You Are” in 2020. It didn’t feel like it was meant to be a poem; so, I decided to turn it into a standalone children’s book about self-love and acceptance. Children are constantly fighting for their right to individuality and self-appreciation. For adults, this can turn into a lifelong struggle. As one of my day jobs, I work with children with special needs, as well as kids in a school setting. This hands-on experience reinforced the idea that no matter their story, every child is human. Their preference is their own.
It felt incredibly cathartic to write a children’s book. I actually have two more coming in 2022 to look out for: one delving deeper into pronouns, the other focusing on the importance of black lives. So far, the title for one of the books is already displayed on Goodreads. “Super Gay” is dedicated my community—the LGBTQIA+ community—and focuses primarily on pronouns.
In 2022, I’ve created a children’s book called “Colorless” focused on the Black Lives Matter movement. As the year progresses, I have many more children’s books, children’s series (releasing on YouTube), and a YA book to come. Above all else, I believe strongly in doing what you teach—in practicing what you preach. These stories are meant to empower you, just as my business is meant to do the same. They correlate with one other, uniting under a common goal: to aid others on their journey of healing and self-love. With my toolkit, I can help you start writing that first sentence.
Let my reiterate: I feel that self-acceptance is so important. Growing up queer and with special needs, there is a stigma to fight. You are underestimated, and determined to prove otherwise. Kids of special needs aren’t highlighted in society as much as they should be. There isn’t a lot of meaningful education about kids with special needs, unless you have personal experience either working with them or being one yourself. These children are amazing human beings that wholeheartedly inspire my books. I write in accessible terms—usually poetry and children’s stories—to reach that population, encouraging equal reading and enjoyment at any age.
My fundamental desire is to make information known about children and adults with special needs. Their story needs to be heard. I would like influencers, gamers, and more to join in the storytelling. Video games are a fresh medium to tell stories; but the person playing the game also has a story to tell. Regardless of their approach, everyone deserves the opportunity to speak their truth. I

Established writers, amateur authors, and those who are simply considering writing, I know exactly how you feel. I have been you—I know what it feels like to be stuck while writing an amazing story, doubting yourself and asking detrimental questions. Is this good enough? Am I good enough? The answer is yes—you are good enough to keep persevering and keep writing. I have faced these very same challenges, including the logistical ones. Are there enough words here for it to be counted as a novel? There is a magic number for novels, but I assure you that it is achievable if you commit yourself and your truth the story. Whether your piece is fiction or non-fiction, I can help—I have written every genre you can name and continue to write today. I believe in practicing what you teach, so I have gone through every process that you are going through with your book. No question is too simple or too far out of reach. Is this the correct structure for my book? It all depends on the book, and shouldn’t be the first thing on your mind; simply writing that first sentence is the first step.
I want to contribute to the support system in your life that helps guide you in the direction of your dreams, whatever they may be. While everyone’s story is different, each author has similar desires—they are coming from a place of love, wanting to make a difference in the world. I would like to help you achieve what you envision. Personally, even if only a handful of people read my book, I would be satisfied as long as the message is clear and it makes a difference in their life. Joining your writing journey as your publishing processes coach and making that difference in your life would mean the world to me. As your coach, the end goal is up to you; if your goal is to publish, then I will help get you there. If you want to take a different route, such as publishing your work in a magazine, or if don’t know what you want to do with your book, I am here to help you with that too.
