in a few extra words

My name is Terra, and I am definitely faking the cool adult thing. I’ve been writing online for so long that I’ve amassed a handful of various pen names; for now, I write as L. Oakes for original fiction and nekokoban for fandom endeavors.

When I write I like to dabble in a little bit of everything, but I’m mostly into romance, mythology, fairytales, and folklore. The majority of my fiction falls into the LGBTQA+ spectrum, with varying levels of spicy. I’m always a sucker for a happy ending.

I live in Seattle, where it rains only half as much as advertised, working a day job in the usual office grind. During my free time, when I’m not writing, I’m doing beadwork, playing puzzle games, and making up elaborate plans for the day a mysterious billionaire makes me their sole beneficiary. Or I win the lottery.
