about

Hi everyone! Thanks for visiting my profile and reading my fics. I'm a big Naruto and Bleach fan! I'm also halfway through a Ph.D program in English Literature, which means I professionally study and teach literature to undergraduates at a very competitive university. I write in the tradition of William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, and Maxine Hong Kingston -- my writing is highly experimental and filled with intentional tense switching (past, present) as well as point of view switches (first, second, third person) as a formalistic choice. My narratives are often nonlinear, though I do occasionally write linear narratives.

These formalistic choices are not only intentional, but also educated decisions. Please keep this in mind when you review.

Thank you for reading!
