About Me

If you are sending me a postcard, please try not to mail it in an envelope - i really prefer postcards that go through the mail.

Hello! I'm Bee :) I am an OG Swap-Botter, though I haven't been active in a long while. This year, one of my hobbies has been sending mail to friends, and I thought I'd mix a little swap-bot back into the rotation.

I am an author represented by The Purcell Agency. I've written 5 books, and I'm working on my sixth. I have three books "on sub" to editors at major publishing houses, so with any luck someday soon maybe you'll see my books in stores. If you want to read my serialized fiction (new chapters released weekly), you can start reading for free with the link above but it only works for USA right now :(.

When I'm not writing, I'm usually baking bread or cooking. I cook a lot of Japanese food, trying to capture comfort feelings from when I lived there. I'd love to go back someday soon, and I'm keeping up with my Japanese by practicing with Duolingo and writing to my Japanese penpals.

Favorite Crafts

Recently I've gotten into junk journaling/memory keeper journaling. I also love to garden in the spring. I have a small veggie/herb patch and a decent size flower garden with lots of perennials. Aside from that, I enjoy cooking, occasional baking (if you have any good recipes, send them my way!), watercolor painting, and writing letters. I can also sew and knit, though I don't do it often anymore. However, I would love more "one hour" projects, so if you have any favorites please let me know :)

Favorite Books

Some of my recent favorites:

DIVINE RIVALS by Rebecca Ross // THE SPIRIT BARES ITS TEETH by Andrew Joseph White // A FAR WILDER MAGIC by Allison Saft // 10,000 DOORS OF JANUARY by Alix Harrow NETTLE & BONE by T. Kingfisher

And some of my all time favorites:

STARDUST by Neil Gaiman // THE NIGHT CIRCUS by Erin Morgenstern // LIRAEL by Garth Nix

I also read romance/"spicy books" but I hate the miscommunication trope. I have a YA Fairyloot subscription, and a Kindle Unlimited subscription. You an always check my Amazon wishlist, since a lot of times I will add books I've heard of and am interested in reading to my Amazon.

Favorite Television

I honestly do not watch TV, but I do watch a lot of Korean/Japanese youtube vloggers who clean and bake and craft. And I watch penpal with me videos and junk journal videos. However, I am excited for Bridgerton Season 3 :)

Dislikes / No Thank You

I am not religious, but you do you :)

I do not eat a lot of candy, and prefer savory snacks.

"What the fox" items, or items with quippy sayings just aren't my style, sorry.

I strongly dislike bananas.

I don't collect or use ATCs or friendship books/slams.

No decorative napkins please.
