Writing began as a hobby of mine when I was a child. I found the fantasy genre infinitely fascinating: dragons, magic and otherly worlds always stole my attention. Eventually, I created my own fantastical worlds, characters, and magic systems that took shape over hundreds of thousands of words in handwritten journals, and eventually, shared on the Internet.
But I realized something was missing from the fantasy works that I read and wrote: diverse representations of mental illness. Growing up surrounded by examples of mental illness and fighting my own battles, I realized that it was vital for me to represent these perspectives, starting with my own.
I also have an unusual fascination with the Japanese culture, history, mythology and folklore, and language. For my first two years in university, I studied the Japanese language, and to this day, I am always learning more. One day, I hope to be fluent and visit Japan myself!
The first fantasy series I intend to finish is called Wyvern Wars, which will be comprised of four to five novels following some amazing characters in a world I’ve created with some parts of Japanese mythology and folklore in mind.
