“Earth 3032” On May 15, 2020 this short science fiction piece was published in Collective Realms Magazine. Humanity went extinct long ago and now Earth is a tourist destination for alien races. However, one human remans in a cryogenic chamber and is awoken by a peculiar group of aliens with different motives.
World of Words articles. While interning at the incredible library of World of Words, found in the Education building at the UofA in Tucson, AZ, I wrote several articles that were published on the website. There are two press releases and an interview I conducted with author David Bowles. They can be found here.
I run a podcast titled “Podcasting Until Ragnarok,” where I discuss various topics and read some of my works. I began it during covid and hope to continue it for the years to come. It can be found here on Anchor or wherever you listen to your podcasts.
Fanfiction is the main way I practice my writing skills. I like writing fanfiction because it allows me to be creative while forcing me to work inside the already set limitations of the universe. While I often use preexisting characters, I enjoy creating my own characters within the parameters of the universe who romance the character(s) of my choice. If you’d like to see my works, here is my Archive of Our Own account.
