About

Do you like cats who encourage you to smile, libraries of all sorts, and YA novels that feature lots of queer characters (especially ones questioning their identities)? If so, you are in the right place! 

I'm Benni, and I am a librarian and a writer. My focus is on creating resources that are useful not just for librarians but also for library users, and I also write YA novels that are filled with queer characters who share my various identities. Writing has been a struggle for me for the past few years due to trauma, and I am working through it to write new stories that I feel need to be told.

My current project focuses on the relationship between a bisexual, demiromantic demigirl who is just beginning to explore her nonbinary identity, and a pansexual, aromantic nonbinary teen who isn't so sure that they are as aromantic as they had thought. The questioning storylines and #ownvoices characters make this story a sweet and charming non-romance.

Other projects in the works include a Boy Meets World retelling centering a gay Shawn Hunter, and a story revolving around a nonbinary teen navigating relationships while having to lie and backstab as they attempt to win an online Survivor game.

My partners in crime are my tuxedo cat Coco (aka Costco, who has her own Twitter and Instagram), and my polydactyl tabby cat Gretchen (aka Spleens). In many ways I wouldn't be able to function without them, and they really love taking silly pictures and encouraging people to live their best life.

Supporting me will allow me to take better care of both myself and my cats while I create stories and resources. Thank you so much for your support!
