I'm a lifelong YA reader. I love this genre because young adulthood is a time of firsts, discovery, emotional highs and lows, and ultimately, learning about oneself and who we're going to become. It is THE most exciting time of one's life.

I'm a research psychologist, editor, and aspiring writer. I've straddled multiple cultures as an atheist child of first-generation Taiwanese immigrants in America, and as a practicing Muslim expat in secular Turkey.
