Hello! I’m Mackenzie Adix, a chocolate-eating, tea-drinking, book-loving library aide living in Oregon’s beautiful Willamette Valley. I enjoy creative writing, drawing, knitting, watching animated movies, taking long walks on the beach, and reading good books. I enjoy speculative fiction and I would love to be a writer within this broad genre when I “grow up.” In the meantime, I’ll content myself with creating blog posts and slowly typing out the first draft of the steampunk novel that’s been rattling around in the back of my head for years. It’s time to set those characters free from the confines of my mind!
