CROW WEBSITE tropes & triggers.png

I've tried my best to compile a comprehensive list of tropes and triggers for each of my books and series. These are the major ones. There may be more I might have missed or overlooked. If you have any questions about a particular trope or trigger, please don't hesitate to reach out! Also, if you feel a trigger should be included on this list, please feel free to send me an email. I know I write dark things but I don't ever want to induce a panic attack in my readers or trigger something inadvertently.
