    Hello Sunbeams! June has always been an important month for me and this year is no different. Aside from it being PRIDE, it’s also my birthday month!

I absolutely cannot wait for readers to get their hands on this story. Darkness Defined is my absolute pride and joy, not to mention my go-to comfort read. If you’re tired of me regaling the world with how much… Continue reading The Countdown Begins
