Content Warnings

I’m one of those people who intensely dislikes spoilers (even the story description on the back cover gives me headaches), but at the same time, I want to be able to accommodate the people who need to know what’s coming. This was my compromise with myself. Please see below for any relevant content warnings. If you think I’ve missed something, please send me an email through my contact page.

I’ll warn for graphic sex scenes, but I won’t warn for the existence of prominent LGBTQIA+ characters nor for the presence of profanity. Queer people don’t need a warning label, and although it’s not ubiquitous, assume that I’ll swear at least once.

No content warnings for individual poems, but I might set up warnings for my collections.
