As a writer I read… okay, not as much as I should. But here’s an incomplete list of books I’ve loved. If you’ve noticed most of them are queer as hell, congratulations, you found my niche.

Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh

While I have you here…

I’d like to recommend a book that I’ve read and loved. This gives you something cool to read and, if you click through and buy anything in the next 24 hours, I get a kickback from Amazon or Book Depository. Win/win.

Hyperbole and a Half is the sort of book that’ll have you crying laughing. If you want to learn how to turn even the most depressing content into the funniest thing you’ve ever written, look no further than Allie Brosh’s writing.

Grab it on Amazon here or Book Depository here.


Save the Cat by Blake Snyder

While I have you here…

I’d like to recommend a book that I’ve read and loved. This gives you something cool to read and, if you click through and buy anything in the next 24 hours, I get a kickback from Amazon or Book Depository. Win/win.

If story structure is your nerd jam (as it is mine) then you’ll love Save the Cat.

You’ll also become that friend who’s insufferable to see movies with because you’ll keep pointing out the beats. RIP your friendships.

Seven Tears at High Tide by C.B. Lee

While I have you here…

I’d like to recommend a book that I’ve read and loved. This gives you something cool to read and, if you click through and buy anything in the next 24 hours, I get a kickback from Amazon or Book Depository. Win/win.

Seven Tears at High Tide tells the story of Kevin Luong, a lonely teen who asks the sea for just one summer of happiness and love. To his surprise, the sea listens.

This is a queer YA fantasy story featuring selkies, young love, and happy-ever-afters. You’re welcome.

Say Hello by Carly Findlay

While I have you here…

I’d like to recommend a book that I’ve read and loved. This gives you something cool to read and, if you click through and buy anything in the next 24 hours, I get a kickback from Amazon. Win/win.

The only downside to Carly Findlay’s first memoir is that I couldn’t read it sooner. It’s exactly what I needed to read as someone living with disability.
