Hey there! I’m Ruby, an aspiring YA author and classic Hufflepuff.

My first stories were Twilight fanfictions, written because fifteen-year-old Ruby had too many emotions about sparkly vampires. (And I regret nothing.) I’ve since moved on and have been writing my own stories for almost ten years now.

I’m currently wrapping up my first novel, Lady of Daemons. You can get the latest on how that’s going here. I also post writing tips and prompts, book reviews, and loads of GIFs. This is a blog for all the lovers of YA—the readers and the writers.

If you’re a writer, a reader, or just happen to have snacks, come sit with me for a while and let’s talk YA.
