When Yaasha Moriah was about eight years old, she wrote a story about a stamp that died after a little boy ripped it off an envelope.
Her mother: "Don't make the stamp die."
Yaasha: "But Mom, a stamp can't survive that!"
That stamp story was significant for two reasons.
First, it demonstrated that Yaasha had an imagination, which is kind of important if you're going to write fantasy and science fiction.
Secondly, it hinted that she tends to appreciate darker themes. If you read her stories, they're mostly "nobledark" (a mid-point between the opposite styles of noblebright and grimdark).
The painful. The beautiful. The numinous.
That's what Yaasha writes about.
Yaasha has come a long way since her stamp story. In 2013, she published her first book, READY FOR HIM TODAY (incidentally, not speculative fiction) and since then, she has published several speculative fiction novellas (IMMERSION; PROJECT MINERVA; REFLECTIONS; and PROMETHEUS). In 2015, her short story "Wings Beneath Water" earned Silver Honorable Mention in the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future contest, and the expanded version is now available as a book.
