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 and a novella. Some of my other favorite writers are Louise Glück, Daphne du Maurier, Sara Teasdale, Leonora Carrington, and Kelly Link.
