I'm Jonaya Riley, an aro-ace trans woman who does writing, voice acting, graphic design, photography, and a smattering of other creative shit on the side!

I'm active in the Homestuck fan community and write my own gothic horror podcast, The Alabaster Bible.

I'm currently a writer and narrative director for the Homestuck New Game Plus visual novel!


I'm a writer for a number of projects, both Homestuck and non-Homestuck.

I have experience with standard narrative prose as well as experience with scrip/dialogue writing for comics, audio productions, and visual novels.

  • Writer and Designer for Palace of Cold and Silence

Palace of Cold and Silence


On an Earth in 1989, Jane Crocker is on an expedition to the Antarctic to uncover a mysterious ruin and the reason for the disappearance of the previous team sent to find its secrets.

On another Earth in 1999, Jade Harley leads Project SunGlass, an enigmatic government program that finds itself tasked with sorting through the bizarre logs found in the Antarctic ice and dated to 1989. A 1989 that never happened.

As the two women unravel the mysteries of their respective timelines, their fates become inexorably linked as they discover the secrets of the ancient past, parallel timelines, and a game that they are both fated to play.
