Photo of Masquerade


Hi. I'm Shelby. You can call me that or Masq or Mask. I pretty much answer to any variation of my username. I'm an English major concentrating in Creative Writing. I've been writing since I could lift a pencil, and I hope to keep writing for a long time to come.

Find me on Goodreads:

I also like crafting and I have an etsy:


Writing. Shocking, I know. Besides writing? Ummmm guitar, drawing, listening to music, going to concerts.


Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
