About animalsandmagic

I am an author, artist, and the owner of A&M Moonlight Creations, an independent publishing company. I primarily write children’s fiction about animals, magic, superheroes, and more. Some of my upcoming works include an anthology, realistic fiction and my story of growing up with selective mutism, all of which I’m writing with the intention of promoting mental health awareness. I read a lot as my followers on Goodreads, BookBub, and Twitter are well aware of. I have many hobbies and interests. Reading and photography are my main hobbies. I also love animals and currently have a Toy Poodle named Merveille, and a Mini Rex rabbit named Kojikaki. I have adopted most of my pets from rescue centers.
