For my thesis I decided to go the creative route and write a novel. There is a definite lack of LGBTQ+ genre fiction for young adults being written, and so I wanted to add to this slowly growing literary niche. The plot of my book follows sixteen-year old Ji, a botanist from the snowy planet of Pan Ku, millennia after Earth’s destruction. It covers themes of racism, immigration, rebellion, and acceptance while still being an engaging read.
