I started to write intentionally when I was 12 years old and attended my first serious workshop at 16. I continued to write fiction until I moved to Boston, to pursue an MA. Life became complicated, and, although I continued to write and publish, I left fiction aside for a few years. Stories, however, are always in my mind and, in 2016, I decided I couldn't postpone writing anymore. I signed up for an MFA which allowed me to write fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. I finished my first novel, The University of Shadows, in 2019. I'm currently working on a couple of long fiction projects as well as a non-fiction book.
THE UNIVERSITY OF SHADOWS
The University of Shadows is an urban fantasy that mixes elements from gothic fiction and
the campus novel. The novel’s basic premise is of a university that exists in a parallel world to
which individuals can go to discover things about themselves or to change as they affect the
institution. Linnea, the main character, reaches the University of Shadows accidentally only to
discover that she was supposed to have received an invitation to be there.
