My Writing

Taleth’s Stories

Who and what do I write about?

Like I’ve mentioned elsewhere on this site, I write what I would like to read. That means that I want to write stories in all kinds of genres–sci-fi, fantasy, crime, thriller, horror, historical fiction, whatever–featuring girls like me! Girls that like other girls.

While everyone loves a good heart-wrenching story about a teenager coming to terms with being gay and then dealing with the struggles of coming out blah blah… these stories are hugely important, but they can get a little depressing. I’m looking for escapism here!

My stories are never about a girl being bi or gay. They’re about a girl doing some cool shit–fighting dragons, saving a city, running away from the mafia–and if she happens to find love along the way–with another woman–cool shit.

The stories currently available for free on Wattpad take place in a modern setting, but the fantasy/sci-fi stuff is certainly coming.

Read more about them below!


Alex’s Girl


Rating: Mature (graphic violence, mature sexual themes)

Genre: Dark Mafia Romance

Status: Complete.

Val Greco is a fierce and determined teenager on the run from the powerful mafia families that run her city: The Grecos and the Costa. She’s made a bold move that put a target on her back and now both families—including the one led by her bloodthirsty father—are hunting her down to make her pay for her actions.

But Val isn’t one to back down easily. She’s determined to start a new life and leave her past behind, but first she needs a place to lay low and a way to make some quick cash. After weeks of being on the run, Val stumbles upon a bar with a “Help Wanted” sign in the window and she sees it as a sign.

But Val wasn’t expecting to meet Alex, the beautiful but aloof bar manager that agrees to hire Val on a whim. Despite Alex’s attempts at keeping Val at a distance, Val can’t help but be drawn to her new boss, with tensions rising even higher as Alex agrees to let Val hide out at her place. As Val begins to chip away at Alex’s icy exterior, it becomes clear that Alex has her own demons to face and past full of just as many, if not more secrets than Val.

The past has a way of catching up, and soon Val is faced with difficult decisions that threaten not just her life, but those of her new friends as well, including Alex. With everything on the line, Val fights to escape her past and create a new future, maybe even one with Alex. In order to do that, Val will have to navigate the dangerous and deadly world of the mafia while finding out who she can trust. Will Val be able to outrun her past and find true love and freedom? Or will the new life she’s been trying to build come crashing down under the pressure of a destiny written for her before she was born?

This story at 2.6MM reads on Wattpad. At its height of popularity it hit rank #78 in romance (Wattpad’s most popular genre) and #56 in non-teen fiction.

Lost Then Found

(Sequel to Alex’s Girl)


Rating: Mature (graphic violence, mature sexual themes)

Genre: Dark Mafia Romance

Status: On-Going

Summary (SPOILERS, do not read if you have not finished book 1):

It has been seven years since the events of ‘Alex’s Girl’, where Alexis Sterling loved then lost Valerie Greco, a troubled but selfless young woman who managed to sneak her way into Alex’s heart when she wasn’t looking.

Though Alex still misses Val every day, she has tried to move on with her life. She has become an emergency room doctor, she’s moved into a beautiful new home, and she’s even made some new friends. She also spends a lot of her time witnessing firsthand the ripple effect her actions seven years ago have caused her beloved city, with mob violence growing increasingly out of control and the hospitals quickly filling to capacity with more and more victims.

Tensions are high as the Costa crime family are more powerful than they have ever been before, bringing the city to its very knees. And to make matters worse, Alex has unwittingly befriended the daughter of her most hated enemy, Ciro Costa, the man responsible for Val’s death.

The Grecos, on the other hand, have been laying low the last seven years, their illegal operations mostly cloaked in shadows… that is… until now.

The Grecos are back, and they’re back with a vengeance that demands blood. Their sudden comeback as a powerhouse crime family has Alex asking, how? Or perhaps the question she should be asking is, who?

Little Red Riding Hoodie

Little Red Riding Hoodie Cover

Rating: Teen/Young Adult

Genre: Short Story/Romance/Fairy Tale-Retelling/Young Adult

Status: Complete.

17 year old Scarlet Redmond has a secret, and that secret is the beautiful, smart, goody-goody popular girl Jacqueline Hunter.

Living in Deep Wood, a rural farming town in Idaho that hasn’t changed much since the 1800s, Scarlet has to keep her relationship with Hunter a secret lest they fall prey to the homophobic bullying of their classmates.

One day, on her way to visit her grandmother, Scarlet meets the enigmatic social pariah known as Mara Wolf, a mysterious girl surrounded by infamy and damning rumors. Wolf doesn’t seem to want to leave Scarlet alone, and there’s something about her infuriating smile that makes it seem as though Wolf knows everyone’s secret… even Scarlet’s.

This story was written as an entry for the @lgbtq ‘Once Upon A Time’ contest and was an ‘honorary mention’ (even though it got the most votes out of every single entry–yes I’m bitter).

The Locker Room

The Locker Room (1)

Rating: Teen/Young Adult

Genre: Short Story, Romance, Young Adult

Status: Complete.

Valerie Greco hates Alexis Sterling, and the feeling is mutual. It seems as if the two have been at war ever since they stepped foot on campus, although no one really knows why. The one thing they are forced to play nice for is their soccer team, but they’ve just played the final game of the year, and Val has some unfinished business with the Sterling girl before the night is through.

***NOTICE: This short story is NOT in ANY WAY related to the storyline in ‘Alex’s Girl’ or ‘Lost Then Found’. I repeat: NOT RELATED. Not a prequel. Not a spinoff. Not related. It merely uses heavily tweaked, 2D versions of the same characters. You will find their actions rather out-of-character (or in-character if they were drunk, dumb teenagers with completely different lives/backstories).


A Method of Discipline


Rating: Mature (mature sexual themes, age gap)

Genre: One-shot, Adult, TeacherXStudent, Romance

Status: Complete 

Valerie Greco, the school’s notorious troublemaker, stopped bothering to show up to detention weeks ago. In a desperate attempt to get the problem student in control, the principal instead sentences her to be a slave to Ms. Sterling, an English teacher known for having a ruthless, ‘no-bullshit’ attitude.

But can Ms. Sterling figure out an effective method of keeping the student in check? Or will Val’s out-of-control behavior finally get her expelled?

This was written as a stand-alone one-shot for a competition hosted on Wattpad and I’m happy to say that it won!

    Hi! I just want to know who are the models you used for val and alex?

    • Hi there!

      I really don’t know, I just bought the image off some stock photo website like shutterstock. Honestly those models don’t even look like how I picture them, but they’re just first draft/Wattpad covers so for $15 it was a steal.
