Welcome to this site! My name is Claris Lam, though I also go by the name Mystical Authoress here on the internet.
I write short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. In addition, I am currently writing multiple novels.
I previously won 3rd place in the Elora Short Story Festival in 2015 (Teen Category). My poetry has been featured in The Blank Page (2019) and in the poetry collection “Depths Of Summer” (2021). One of my flash fiction pieces, “Waterlogged Boredom,” is featured in the anthology Sensorially Challenged, Vol. 3 (2021).
I even previously participated in, and achieved all my writing goals during, NaNoWriMo in 2020 and Camp NaNoWriMo (April 2018, April 2020, and July 2020)!
In addition to writing fiction and poetry, I’ve been writing and posting fanfiction on Fanfiction.net since 2012. I started crossposting fanfics to Archive Of Our Own in 2018.
I’ve written book reviews since 2015, and continue doing so even now. On this site, you’ll find all my book reviews, as well as other book-and-writing-related subjects such as book tags, major updates on my writing, and so much more. You’ll also find links to the fanfiction, original fiction, and poetry I have published as well!
Thank you for reading my work, whether it be the reviews, the fiction, or even fanfiction! I hope that what you read brings a smile to your face.
