Hi, I’m Maxxe– welcome to my site, where you can stay up to date on my various writing projects, publications, and generally over-ambitious endeavors.
I’m the author of Touchstones, Light of the Oceans, several academic papers, a few fanfiction pieces, and a couple of very exciting new projects set to release through fall of 2021 and winter of 2022. I also write under the name Gemma Tate, publishing feel-good rom coms with snappy banter and sweet endings (most recently, that includes All the Way Home— click the title link, or check out the first chapter for free here.
I hold degrees in History, Art History, and Anthropology, and am pursuing my MA in History. I’ve published two papers in the Drew Review (academic journal) and some short stories in various literary magazines over the years.
More often than not, I can be found with my nose in a book and a cup of tea in my hand. I like fiction, fanfiction, and nonfiction in equal measure, and am happy to share my (sometimes unsolicited) thoughts on all of the above!
Find links to read/purchase my books HERE (publications under Maxxe Riann and Gemma Tate).
