About Me

I am a sci-fi and fantasy obsessed, book reviewing, cat-loving Australian nurse living in London. I review upcoming SFF books as well as backlist titles, with a focus on unique and inclusive stories.

Trigger Warnings

While I now include a list of trigger warnings for every book I review, I can’t guarantee that each list is exhaustive, or relevant to every individual. Feel free to contact me via social media if you have questions about a particular book, or otherwise reach out to the author via the book’s Goodreads page.

My trigger warnings do not include warnings about mature content, e.g. violence, language or gore.
