Short Story Collection

Creative Writing
This short story collection is a series of individual short tales exploring the theme of home, identity and mental health.

“This is a series of stories created with the techniques of autofiction and nonfiction writing. I fictionalize memories because as we change, so does how we look at our memories, and the memory itself. Instead of fixing my stories on the facts, I turned to my emotional truth instead. This is not because I, as a story teller, am unreliable, but because I am the story itself. "I am telling you stories. Trust me." - Jeanette Winterson”
