"Excellent. Disturbing. Distressing. Hopeful. Reading this collection reminded me of the lurching discomfort and curious longing I often felt when reading fantasy as a child. All the things I want out of speculative fiction."

“Some people are born in the mountains, while others are born by the sea. Some people are happy to live in the place they were born, while others must make a journey to reach the climate in which they can flourish and grow. Between the ocean and the mountains is a wild forest. That is where I want to make my home.”

“If I could just spend all my time drawing made up medieval buildings that would be great.”

“I don't want to be a girl. I don't want to be a boy either. I just want to be myself.”
