I'm a Professional Devourer and Hoarder of Books. Creator and Goddess of Fantastical Worlds. Advocate, Ally, and Mama Bear Extraordinaire. Fat and Sassy Queen.
But you can call me Zada.
My first book (SHADOW: A Short Story) was published in September 2019. It's a short horror story about a little girl who finds an unlikely and powerful friend in her own shadow.
My obsessions include anything rainbow-themed, equality and equity for all, things that go bump in the night - or even the day, and fat (fierce, authentic, tenacious) and sassy girl-power.
This site is home to all my creative content and short stories, as well as links to those projects I hold dear to my heart.
I'm the mom who shares what it's like raising a transgender child in the hope of educating other parents and caregivers. I love talking to your LGBTQ+ kids and explore many topics pertaining to the LGBTQ+ community in my writing, podcast, social media, and other content creation.
I'm also the person who focuses on the positive and possible in life, the head cheerleader in supporting those out there pursuing what they love most while living as their most authentic selves.
I'm an award-winning author, excellent guest speaker, and prolific copywriter.
Really, I just want to help as many LGBTQ+ families as I can, agonize over creating the perfect horror short before I die, spend lots of time with those I love, and laugh as often as possible.

I educate, inspire, and support LGBTQ+ youth and their families on Instagram.
I love sharing my reading progress, thoughts, and goals at Goodreads.
Pinterest is one of my addictions. I use it for everything – organizing life’s chaos, possible characters for works-in-progress, causes I believe in, inspiring artwork, favorite books, and amazing authors.
I randomly check on Twitter throughout the week.
And I cruise by Facebook every few days.
