Cia's writing involves stories about relationships, usually budding ones. The excitement and fun at the first meeting to the love or sorrow that can come down the line, it’s all there. She doesn't allow herself to be boxed into one genre, instead her stories can be spread out through multiple categories, including: Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Modern, and even mixes of those and more. The common thread that binds them all is the realization that you never know what is going to happen next.
