My name is Cyan and I am currently a high school senior. My preferred genre is fiction. I know that’s a very open-ended genre, but that’s what I like about it. I don’t stick to specifically fantasy or horror, I go all over the map. I like writing fantasy because I can make anything that I want happen, but I also like writing realistic fiction because then I can portray a piece of my life and the real world into a story and it can still be fiction but relatable and believable at the same time.

I write science fiction. Why, I don’t know, as I almost never read the genre. I tend to gravitate toward it in films and television shows, but my preferred reading genres are fantasy, historical, mystery, and romance. I suppose that would explain why my first series is a highly political space western.

I’m Becky Kapjon and I am a contemporary romance writer. Since I am an avid romance reader, I decided why not tell my own stories. I take my stories one step further, my stories are not a typical romance novel. They are a little smuttier than a typical romance novel. My characters come to the life on the page, with everyday problems with everyday situations. They don’t always have a happy ending. I enjoy writing about strong female characters who take charge of their life where sometimes it works for them and sometimes it doesn’t. I’m hoping to publish my first novel soon.
