Brooklyn Wallace

Brooklyn Wallace was born in a small town of less than one thousand people in the backwoods of Texas. Her anxiety (affectionately dubbed “painful shyness” by her mother) inhibited her ability to connect with her peers, and the internet became her refuge. At twelve she read Nancy Farmer's Sea of Trolls series, and knew that writing was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life.

The majority of her early years were spent writing terrible erotic Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfiction, raiding her local library's YA section, and avoiding human interaction. Now a starving graduate student in North Texas writing slightly better erotic Yu-Gi-Oh! fanfiction, Brooklyn is active in fandom, conventions, and the queer romance community. She is an independent researcher of male interpersonal relationships and queer representation, and presents her findings at various anime and queer media conventions across Texas.

An anxious perpetual sleeper with a penchant for self-deprecating humor, Brooklyn has a soft spot for writing comedies, forbidden love, and nerdy queers. She hopes to bring QPOC to the forefront of her works and explore all forms of queer love in the black community. When not writing, she enjoys touring various anime conventions, reading and writing fanfiction, yelling about sports, and watching TV shows religiously.
