#MSWL a near-future America faces some cataclysm where we are the ones fleeing south to the safety of Mexico (no zombies pls, more real world). Except there’s a wall keeping us out. #POC #ownvoices author pls. Mexican protag dealing w/ US immigrants. Dual POV maybe?
Goals for 2019 inspired by @NaomisLitPix & @SoCalledYALife
- Stop using "I think" so much
- Help the Agents of @bookendslit achieve their goals
- Rep more psychl suspense & women's fiction--especially diverse & own voices to my list. #MSWL

Stacey Donovan @DonovanesqueI'm feeling a strong urge this afternoon to write stories about how It's Not Too Late. About people who can still be that person they wanted to be, live that life they wanted to live, know that love they wanted to know, even after so much time. ❤️ (also #MSWL)
