While I write my books primarily to be fun, my stories do sometimes delve into some darker themes and content that could be unpleasant or painful for some readers. To help decide whether my books are a good fit for you, I’ve provided these lists of the potentially upsetting or triggering content each story contains.
I have tried to make them as comprehensive as possible, but must note that I can’t always anticipate what subject matter might pose a problem. If I have missed something that you believe should be included in this list, please contact me and let me know.
