hello! my name is elle, i'm the author of heart drum. heart drum is an lgbt+ slice of life series with relatively little drama. there are various ongoing plot arcs with themes of love, identity, responsibility, and trauma.
i started heart drum in quarantine because i wanted to write about a modern world that's safer and happier than our own. each of the eight main characters embody a hurdle of maturity that must be crossed in life, emphasizing the need to listen and learn from others, because you won't have all the answers yourself.
i've set heart drum in my own home town, with my own generous modifications. i think that familiarity with their surroundings helps add to the feeling that you are part of their family, and they love you very much, no matter where you are in your life.
if you're looking for escape, friends, romance, or simply found family, then i think heart drum is the novel for you. while heart drum isn't in comic format, you can find plenty of extra art, videos, and writing in the extras section. you can always give me a request if you want to see something specific!
with all my love
