My pronouns are Mal or they/them. I am a queer nonbinary pre-published Children's lit writer working on my debut MG contemporary, titled Welcome To Chemoville. Told from the point of view of a nonbinary eleven year old named Cory, who while battling cancer, races to find their missing adopted dog Zeke before he's gone for good. If Cory can do that and kick cancer's butt, they may realize they can do anything. I'm querying this manuscript.
I recently won the honor award for the Live Pitch event for Welcome to Chemoville, at the 2023 Summer SCBWI virtual conference. Yay!
I'm working on my second MG Contemporary novel, a budding romance between nonbinary Porter and queer Izzie, who play on the basketball team. Porter is nervous and excited, but an accident could change everything.https://malmalme.wordpress.com
