Shaky Alien is now a sponsor!

I am beyond pleased to announce that Shaky Alien Publications is now the official sponsor for the podcast and independent author community, Between the Pages with Shawn Amick!

This is an indie created and run community full of wonderful authors, editors, artists, and narrators with the goal of closing the gap between independent publishing and traditional publishing through intra-community efforts of uplifting each other and assisting with the long and arduous process of becoming a published author.

For more information regarding Between the Pages, please check out the new Sponsorship Page below!


In other important news, I will be going on a 2 year publishing hiatus between the release of CFYC Book Three and CFYC Book Four. During this time, I won't be launching any traditional books because I'll be busy writing them! And also relocating to an entirely different country and continent! In the mean time, I'll be trying to release new chapters of the Graphic Novel, and probably working on getting all those audiobook files compiled into a single, easily downloadable album so they aren't clogging up the shop page!

I hope that Book Three of Caring for Your Clown really blows it out of the water for you guys, and I greatly appreciate your support and patience.

My Story

I am a former cosmetologist turned truck driver. And now,  in a surprising turn of events, an author too! In my spare time, while not planning the next entry in my debut series, Caring for Your Clown, I enjoy writing songs, poetry, and instrumental music of various sorts. Don't worry, that's probably not ever going to get published! By far, my interests lie strongly in the creative arts. 


Art and Animation are my biggest creative influence, and when NOT daydreaming for hours at a time about what probably awful thing I'm going to do to my characters next, I like to work on short and usually not that great animations.  


CFYC is my first time writing to publish and I wanted to have a wacky series with lots of inclusivity. Plus, I'm trans, and having books with a trans protagonist was a bit of a must for me. I believe representation matters a lot, so I look forward to writing more books with characters from all walks of life! 

I am also a survivor of extensive childhood trauma and abuse, most of which no one but my closest friends and family will ever be privy to. The stories I write all come from this perspective and are undoubtedly heavily rooted in my experience growing up. 

My goal as an author is to provide a voice --as best as I can-- to the kids who were like me, and for the adults like me now. 

Trauma is hard to heal from. It hurts, and it's easy to make mistakes, walk a little backwards, it is so easy to give up. The journey is long, and ugly, and arduous. But it is possible. 



Editorial Reviews

"This is YA fiction at a rarefied level—the author has a knack for conveying how real adolescents might process the complicated feelings experienced by the characters" - Krikus Editorial on Caring for Your Clown: Trial and Error
