Novae Caelum (NOHV-eye KALE-um) is trans, nonbinary, multigender/genderfluid, starfluid, gray ace, and uses star/stars/starself (preferred) or they/them/their pronouns, Mx., and "person."
An example of these awesomely celestial pronouns in use: This is Novae and star is a genderfluid/starfluid trans nonbinary person. Star loves to write stars stories and has so much fun writing them starself. Because writing about space is AWESOME. More info on starfluid, xenogenders, genderfluid, and nounself pronouns.
Novae previously wrote fiction and made design wizardry under a different name. We shall not mention that name.
Novae is a member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Alliance of Independent Authors, The Authors Guild, and Codex Writers. Star has a full bibliography of stars works, because star’s cool like that.
Star is autistic, ADHD, and lives with a chronic illness. If you contact star, it might take a few days for star to get back to you. The gremlins did not eat your email! Well, probably. If it’s been over a week, you’re safe to email again.
