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 short stories and poems every day. I’ve also completed a novel and two feature screenplays. Some of my other favorite writers are Haruki Murakami, Louise Glück, Daphne du Maurier, Sara Teasdale, Leonora Carrington, W. Somerset Maugham, and Kelly Link.

“It fully illustrates Mazzy’s ability to intuitively tap into the darkness and the more oppressive themes… it’s like goth Mary Oliver in a sense.”
