An Indeterminate Number of Nights is a blog where I showcase my creative endeavors. The blog’s primary focus right now is a character known as Julrane of the Sea Dwellers, a solitary figure who tends the gardens of the underwater city known as Gulfia. Whether in the form of narrative poems or prose drabbles, the stories center on her life, her connection to her plants, and her search into the history of her people. Julrane’s story updates at least once a week. Other posts that sometimes appear include samples of my photography and artwork.
Past posts have included excerpts of my work-in-progress novel and stand-alone episodes from other corners of my story world. Most of these focus on adopted siblings Isabelle and Jason Clements and their half jinn roommate Nesrin Halfire, who turns Jason and Isabelle’s lives into ones of unexpected experiences and fantastical adventures, especially when Nesrin’s family is involved.
I am a recent graduate of the University of South Alabama’s masters program in Creative Writing. I completed my undergraduate work at Spring Hill College in 2017, with a double major in creative writing and theology. My primary interests include trains, books, and daydreaming. I grew up in the Fowl River area of Alabama surrounded by family members telling stories, which is where my love of my craft began.
