About the Writer

Quinn T. Sental

is probably most known for their humor and signature writing style.

Quinn is a perpetually tired eighteen-year-old Taiwanese student who hopes one day to publish at least three novels. Right now, in pursuit of that dream, they will settle for a blog, a couple of short stories, and a growing pile of manuscripts and drafts. (And, like, five coffee mugs scattered on their desk.)

The Dark Dandelion is more of a personal blog. Quinn knows that having a steady theme and a professional attitude might benefit them more in the long run, but sadly, they have commitment issues. But hey—that just means the sky’s the limit.

They built this blog as a place to get some of their excess words out, to speak their mind and hopefully entertain some people along the way. You’ll find mostly short casual reads filled with humor and lighthearted existentialism, perfect for a quick read during lunch or a coffee.

Quinn goes by they/them pronouns, and in addition to writing stories, they plan on fighting for a future where people like them—anxious queer kids—can sleep easy.

If you’re interested in getting updates from the blog, or in receiving exclusive bonus content outside of it, consider dropping your email in Quinn’s TinyLetter—which is absolutely, 100% spam-free. In fact, it’s so spam-free, it’ll feel like you never subscribed.

And if you don’t know where to start, here’s a personal favorite blog article about brownies and Douglas Adams. It’s a pretty nice read.

Hope to see you around, dear reader.
