Mental health awareness through queer dark fantasy and horror.
Welcome to the newsletter!
I'm Shane Blackheart, and I focus on mental health awareness through writing fiction, as well as in blog entries about my life. I am an autistic non-binary trans man, I'm plural (on the OSDD spectrum), and I've been writing stories since I was about seven years old.
Throughout the years, writing has been my outlet to heal and cope with PTSD and trauma, and when I'm not writing about that, it provides an escape. I'm also in love with philosophy, religious studies, occult studies, and learning about what makes people tick. I enjoy exploring the darker parts of the human psyche and often do so in my stories, and I like to voice existential questions in a lot of my work to give people something to think about.
Most of my art is centered around my head family—my alters and spirit guides. I also draw art pertaining to my mental illnesses and other dark subjects.
If you decide to subscribe, you will receive infrequent updates (and early previews!) of books I intend to publish, short stories, general news about the writing world and my journey through it, any new videos I decide to make (very infrequent), and new artwork I've done. You can find links to my blogs and other work here.
So stay tuned for lots of spooky, introspective, and paranormal queer stuff year round, as well as a peek into my journey as an author.
That's all for now. Thank you so much for reading, and thank you to everyone who follows and supports what I do ♥
