About the Author

Shane is a disabled nonbinary author of dark queer fiction. They have been writing since they were seven years old, and they haven’t stopped since.

Writing quickly became a way to escape from reality while dealing with early trauma, and it has helped them understand and cope with several mental illnesses they were diagnosed with throughout life. They’ve since used their writing to help raise awareness for misunderstood and stigmatized mental illnesses, but they also enjoy writing stories that make people think differently about societal norms we’re often raised with, such as gender, sexuality, and spirituality. They want to spread the message that it’s okay to be different.

Shane lives in Ohio with their two cat sons. They’ve previously published speculative fiction novels.
