Tokyo, Japan



(Um, so, wow bios are hard.) I studied creative writing at the University of South Florida and used my BA in words to become an English teaching assistant in Tokyo.

Favorite Books

Series: The Seven Realms, Harry Potter, The False Prince, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Song of the Lioness, Matt Cruse
Standalones: Hawksong, The Alchemist, The Floating Islands, Seraphina
Manga (because why not?): Fullmetal Alchemist, Fruits Basket, Tokyo Ghoul, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles

Favorite Quotes
