POC and LGBT Representation in My Books

My goal as an author is to create meaningful and quality pieces of literature that can provide good representation and a safe place for POC and LGBT peoples. My books in the past have definitely not always done so (not to say that they negatively represented or anything like that, but representation was not my core focus back then, it was just to write and have fun) but now I want to make a very active effort in properly representing all kinds of POC and LGBT peoples in my work.

I wanted to give a list of my stories that are completed and in progress and the representation they provide.

For my currently in progress works, if you see something that represents a part of your identity and have any pointers at all for me on how to properly represent it in a character, please do no hesitate to leave a comment and I will incorporate your advice into the character. I will be going more into detail about the characters in this section.
