I’m an avid reader, space enthusiast, and dragon tamer. Writing has been my passion for years. I use words as a method of expression and way to give readers hope.
My writing/editing/reading buddies include a pup named Talia who would eat my computer if she could, a cat named Stiles who just wants company and not to be eaten by the dog, and a bearded dragon named Xephyr.
My favorite genres include but are not limited to all kinds of fantasy, sci-fi of the space opera variety, historical fiction, graphic novels, and select nonfiction and poetry.
Tropes I enjoy:
- Pilots, especially female ones
- Settings written as well as characters
- Disability representation
- Underwater sci-fi
- Con artists
- Susanna Clarke
- Olivia A. Cole
- C. G. Drews
- Victor Hugo
- C. S. Lewis
- Lisa Nicodemus Lyons
- Brandon Sanderson
- J. R. R. Tolkien
- Elizabeth Wein
- Francesca Zappia
I’m not a fan of romance, though I don’t mind the occasional romantic subplot. If you really want me to ship two characters, they must be people first.
Dystopian stories aren’t my thing.
No sex scenes.
Please no excessive swearing (e.g. The Hate U Give).
Volcanic tremors. Radioactive crystals. Life on a rogue planet. Geologist-in-training Tary Vermeij can handle it all. She’s determined to prove herself to the scientific community before they ship her off to school when she turns eighteen in less than a year. What she can’t stand–a stranger’s arrival on the planet, and her Mo’s insistence that they keep his presence a secret, even though she won’t tell the family why. But the Vermeij family doesn’t keep secrets, and the stranger is hiding something. Tary is determined to get her answers and prove herself to the scientific community, and if she times it right, she might be able to do it all at once.
Writing stage: rough draft
Estimated ready for critique: 1 June 2022
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
