2022 Queer Indie Awards

What an honor to receive a nomination for the 2022 Queer Indie Awards! After all these years of writing inclusive stories where the LGBTQ characters aren't just sidekicks, jokes, or victims, it's great to still see my writing recognized. Thanks! I'm nominated in the QueerLit Fiction/Nonfiction category.
