Iris and the Crew Series

The Iris and the Crew series follows the adventures of a science vessel crew on a massively accessible ship, the S.S. SpoonZ. They are a part of a galactic network known as the Keangal (key’angle), where inclusivity and supports are the norm. But not everyone is living in harmony within the Keangal—most notoriously so are the dreaded Piranha Brigade pirates whose creed is to do away with anyone they consider “weak.” And they’ve discovered a new enemy in Iris and the Crew…

I gobble up so many streaming series, I decided to make one myself, in book form! I wanted to create a galaxy where accessibility and accommodation are an integral part of the world-building. The principles of Universal Design and the Social Model of Disability were my inspiration (a good inspiration). My hope is to have readers who are Blind or visually impaired, d/Deaf, neurodivergent, disabled, Spoonie, and/or who manage mental illness find themselves represented as major characters in this story! (I think there might be abled, NT members of that crew somewhere on the ship. I mean, it is inclusive after all.)

  • Season One: Iris and the Crew Tear Through Space! Status: In production, available September 2023
  • Season Two: Iris and the Crew Verb the Noun! (As if I would give away the title this early…) Status: Brand-new WIP
