Where it all began
Mythomania is a project over a year in the making. I was inspired by several different types of media. I have always been a fan of the yandere genre and love watching/reading content containing it. However, there is a severe lack of this trope in western culture. It's typically found in anime and is usually portrayed by female characters. I've also been a huge fan of kpop for over three years and wanted to put the two genres together.
Mytho started out as a fanfiction, but I saw so much more potential in the story. Mythomania began to mean more to me as I continued to write it and soon I had dreams of making it into a published novel.

Isla Montgomery is a normal fan. She supports her favorite K-pop group and swoons over them like every other fangirl. But one Saturday morning her life changes forever when Matoi Jaemin announces to the world that he's in love . . . and with her, a girl he's never even met. He isn't who anyone thought he was, isn't that same smiling man she's used to. Jaemin Matoi is a yandere: a delusional, obsessive, lovesick man whose only medicine is Isla.
“I don’t know him! I don’t know him at all! We’ve never spoken, he’s never gotten in contact with me, none of them have. Until this week, I didn’t know he even knew who I was!”
