Mazzy Sleep

I started writing in July 2020 when I was eight years old. The Illustrated Man by Ray Bradbury sparked something in me, and since then I have been writing dark fantasy/horror short stories and poems every day. I’ve also completed two feature screenplays. A few of my other favorite writers are Louise Glück, Daphne du Maurier, and Sara Teasdale.

I live in Toronto, Canada, with my parents and stuffed animals, Oggie the emperor penguin, Kit the IDK penguin, and Fennec… the fennec fox.
