Jessie W.

Jessie W.I'm very high-energy, so I tend to enjoy books that are fast-paced and easy to finish in just a couple of reading sessions. That said, I also enjoy longer stories with a lot of worldbuilding. As a self-described nerd I particularly enjoy comics, graphic novels, and nonfiction about topics such as organization, collecting, and expressions of fandom.

In my free time I love pursuing creative hobbies. I make jewelry, write, and dress up (or cosplay) at fan conventions. I also love powerlifting and bodybuilding! When I want to relax I watch a lot of television shows, especially creative reality competitions like Project Runway and RuPaul's Drag Race.
