The Cuil Effect
(I think the more that we can do as individuals to create space for people to be authentic- and so often that equates to weird even though I personally think EVERYBODY’s weird, on the inside- I think that creating space for that and creating examples of that automatically liberates others, like in that wonderful Marianne WIlliamson quote: “As we are liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.”-Cass of The Wet Spots) I began writing to save myself, to explore the world, and to deconstruct everything I could think of. The name of my integrated works that stem from The Black Tree series is called The Cuil Effect. Why? Because cuil theory is fantastic and absurd and yet still ties together just like life. What makes cuil theory a perfect tool for my writing is that it is integral to the story line itself. The Black Tree series is the trunk of a tree of interconnected works. Though it may seem like many random events occur in each book there is a method to this madness.

Integrated Non-Monogamy
The first ever book series about the intimacies we experience and seek - particularly within non-monogamy - exploring the systemic and interpersonal isms (credit: Michón Neal) and failings that complicate our interactions and choices, from the point of view of a multiply marginalized person. From deconstructing racism within kink, antiBlackness within polyamory, ableism within Relationship Anarchy, romance supremacy within open relationships, abuse culture and so much more - the Integrated Non-Monogamy series provides context, hidden history, emotional intelligence, anatomy, and connects the dots between seemingly disparate yet inextricable tendrils of power and apathy that wreck havoc on even the most intimate aspects of our lives. This series pulls examples from experience and the cuilverse, and emphasizes the wisdom and experiences of the aromantic, the victimized, the queer, the racialized, the Othergender, the sexually variant, the liminal and the beyond. The Black, queer, nonmen, disabled, and neurodivergent perspective is valued.

Aftermath
After the horrific events ending The Black Tree series, the remains of the crew are divided and enslaved by MIkassa before they can even react. This series explores their lives under a captivity much more stringent than anything they've experienced before. They struggle to find small joys here or there and vie for the Author's affections. And at least a few of them work behind the scenes in order to overthrow Mikassa once and for all. For while his reign only appears to have lasted for two years, as they uncover more and more of his dastardly deeds throughout history, they realize that he is far more powerful and dangerous than they've ever imagined. The multiverse continues to unravel around them and it it is up to them to repair the damage. But will they be up to it after all is said and done? Especially after uncovering one of the darkest secrets their Author's been keeping for so long? In the Aftermath series, nothing is what it seems and each character must come face to face with their mirror. Find out if any of them crack and be prepared to see some familiar faces from other series.

The Colds
Aniella Brewster wants nothing more than to draw, spend time with her family, and maybe take over her mother's tech company to create interactive, immersive comics. Instead she ends up as a cold, basically a slave for the ghost that lives in her home. In the wake of the tragic events of The Crash, she learns from a fellow cold about her new abilities and responsibilities and also navigates several relationships with old and new friends.

Twisted Jinx
This series deals with the more personal experiences, dreams, and fears of the Author's life. Knowing that certain aspects of herself and her history would forever set her apart from the rest of the world, Michon attempts to write stories in order to heal, in order to find answers, and in order to remain sane. Amidst a turbulent home life, a lack of resources, and various health issues that leave her wanting to commit suicide she writes to save her life. Determined to keep their Author alive, the characters from various series she's written cross into the real world to assist her (or at the very least sleep with her). Michon can't really decide whether they help or annoy her more. A lot of the characters have their own issues to deal with and it seems their journey across universes is more of a mixed blessing. Can they all truly come together and find that life is worth living? Will the Author finally be able to accept herself and face the world? Will she merely survive or will she find the fire she needs to thrive?

The Black Tree
The Black Tree series is the epicenter for all of the insanity that spills out across the multiverse. The cracks in the multiverse start here (although the characters are still trying to figure out the who, what, and where of it). The series follows an ever-growing group of Others (aliens, gods, or any other creature that isn’t human but could maybe pass as one) as they try to stop all of the intergalactic wars that keep cropping up. They usually end up getting sidetracked by bullshit, vengeful gods, and one ridiculously evil elf. Many of the characters share a lot of traits in common with humans but then there are moments when you’re definitely glad they don’t live on Earth anymore (like when some of the crew bear witness to the way Razi throws up). As time passes in the Black Tree universe (in a warped way), events get weirder, and more alternates (people from the alternate universe) pour through the cracks the characters begin to realize that one (or a few) of them messed up along the way. But by the time any of them find out what went wrong, things have gotten very, very bad. The only way to fix it is to go back in time to correct it.
Allison Dutch
Half satire and half commentary, the Allison Dutch series walks the line between irreverence and thought-provoking experiences. Yes, it pokes fun at typical ideas of romance, literature, and even ideas of good and evil. But it also explores very real issues that often don’t get talked about such as incest, rape, abuse, suicidal ideation, and what a family really is. It’s the story of a young woman growing into more power than she can responsibly handle at first. She creates a new family made up of people just as broken as she is. She’d be considered more of a villain than a good guy in typical literature but what Black woman isn't depicted that way? Despite these inaccuracies, she still manages to make very real progress towards being a whole person. The Allison Dutch series is a story about family, about becoming whole after surviving trauma, and about realizing that despite every good and noble effort your life can still totally suck.
