I'm Averill. 

I write young adult novels on nights, weekends, and lunch hours. I like to write somewhere at the intersection between serious issues and swoony romance. I’ve never met an enemies-to-lovers I didn’t like, and redemption arcs are my jam.


Besides writing, I spend my free time earning my B.Ed. in Adult Education, reading, swimming, and spending too much time on Twitter. I’m a mental health supporter, Tom Hanks superfan, and enthusiastic hugger. I can quote the entirety of The Princess Bride and listen to too much 2000-era pop-punk to be considered cool.

I am also the founder and organizer of the Ottawa Writer's Circle, one of the largest and most active Meetups in Ottawa. We regularly host social mixers, almost a dozen critique circles, and various workshops for writers. I also write about writing tips and do query and first page critiques on the blog.
