Hey everyone!

My name is Bea, and I love writing, buying books to read until I'm broke, artsing until I can't feel my fingers, photography, crafting, jewelry-making, urban exploring, (dressing in) lolita, and corsets.
(And ships. I really like ships.)

I've been writing stories since I discovered what a computer was. My poems and short stories have been published in several works, including The Kenyon Review Young Writers Anthology and The Labyrinth, the U.S. Naval Academy's official creative writing publication.

Nice to meet you!

I'm currently writing a novel called As Above, So Below. It is the first book of a planned trilogy, involving angel-like creatures, a varied cast with plenty of POC (including a POC heroine), integrated non-hetero relationships, dealing with mental illness and trauma, reincarnation, and traveling to other worlds! If any of that seems like it's up your alley, you're in luck!

SUMMARY


Rede Whitecliff has bad dreams.

And not the normal kind that normal people have, about normal bad things in her life such as her too-small apartment, her unfulfilling job, her less-than-amicable relationship with her parents, or her on-going divorce with a soon-to-be ex-husband. No -- she has dreams of a battlefield scattered with thousands of dead bodies. After years of psychiatrists and therapy, Rede knows that something is wrong with her, but she's not crazy, no matter what all those doctors say.

So when Aster, a woman from those dreams, appears in Rede's life to tell her that she is not what she seems and isn't safe here, Rede follows her to Zion, a completely different world to the one she calls home. But instead of answers all Zion holds is more questions, alongside winged beings called legionnaire locked in an eternal, internal struggle... who think she's the key to finally ending it all.

Unsure of who to trust and what to believe, Rede is thrust in the midst of a conflict she is only starting to comprehend. If she's going to survive, she needs to learn what exactly is buried in the dreams she's worked so hard to ignore.

The question is not if she can uncover the truth, but if she will be the same when she does.

As of 04JUL2016, I have 21 chapters written and in beta. I'll be posting beta chapters up here as I go, 2 or 3 at a time, completely unedited as I finish up the beta manuscript. Only patrons will be able to view these. Upon completion of the beta manuscript, only patrons will be able to download the beta draft in its entirety as one file -- a file that will also include high quality resolution copies of my art, fan art, guest art, and the cover art draft (which should be done by then).

At that point I will start posting finalized chapters on a regular basis! Patrons will be able to view these chapters a few days in advance to the normal updates, as well as receive sneak previews of the upcoming release. Those who donate a certain amount will receive a signed beta manuscript AND a signed copy of the finished novel upon its release.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
