My journey as a writer:

I have been writing since 2017.
I never thought I’d be a writer someday. But it definitely feels good to write down when nothing seems right. Writing has helped me to look beyond just the sight. It has helped me express better through my words. It has helped me realize how few things look completely different but mean alot more. Writing has helped me find my new self.

My favorite author(s) and book(s)?

Hardy boys and Nancy drew

Why should we read you?

Read me because I write what I feel. I write down in simple terms. Sometimes it’s relatable to many. Sometimes I speak out bold on topics that new writers usually hesitate to. I just want people to know they aren’t alone and they can withstand whatever they are facing. It will be difficult but it will be over soon. And that they can learn from everything that happens in life.

My favorite genre to read / write:

Not specific. But I do write a lot of love, heartbreak, erotica and motivation.

What should we expect from you as a writer in the near future?

I’ll try my best to put forth decent yet attractive writings. And with guidance I might be able to fulfill your expectancy whatsoever it might be.
