Kay fell in love with reading before they fell in love with writing. In high school, they came upon really supportive English teachers, who challenged them to grow and develop their own voice. In time, Kay began to share their work and was published in their high school’s anthology. As the years went on, they transmuted their gift into helping other writers. This is a listing of a few published works that Kay was involved with:
Second Chance by Ryan Troutman (Developmental Edit)
Old Wounds: A Novel by Carrsan T. Morrissey (Beta Reading with critique)
Doing Kink vs. Being Kinky: A Systematic Scoping Review of the Literature on BDSM Behavior, Orientation, and Identity by Angel Russell (Line Edit and Condensing for Journal Submission)
Coupled with the published works listed above, Kay has critiqued and edited 20+ fiction and nonfiction works. They have been retained to aid film festival winners, indie authors, and numerous writers in their pursuit to enrich the creative voice.
