"I write because I am."
Ava began crafting stories before she knew the alphabet and has fervently continued to do so ever since (now with a better grasp on English). Fiction, specifically fantasy, drew her interest from a young age and has held it relentlessly. Through fantastical and magical means, she explores topics concerning environmentalism, sexuality, race, neurodivergency, and occasionally dragons.
In 2016, the blue-haired maverick C. Russell Price introduced her to the dynamism of the contemporary poetry canon. Through this medium, Ava continues to navigate the aforementioned topics and more. Poetry enables her to explore, question, and heal from trauma inflicted by others unto their surroundings and loved ones. Often, this interrogation turns on her own existence, thus drawing on themes from her past and present.
As of 2019, Ava is based and performing in the city of Chicago, hoping to branch out to other regions soon.
