I'm excited to be making my NYT debut! I am 17 years old, and since the age of 12, it has been a dream of mine to get a crossword published in the NYT. Aside from constructing crosswords, I also perform stand-up comedy and write music. They're all my favourite ways to appreciate words, pretty much.

I wrote this puzzle back in January. The seed for this theme was LAN[D ROVE]R, but the entry that made this puzzle possible was PENNY D[READ]FULS. I'm glad it got accepted!

My favourite clues from Will and Joel are [Something most people lie about?] and [Apple's first location?].

My favourite clue that I wrote is [Headrest for a couch napper, say].

Big thanks to Peter Broda for his amazing word list, as well as to Erik Agard for his feedback on my theme answers. Also, I'd like to give a shout-out to the online crosswording community for being a group of such talented and nice people.

I would also like to use this opportunity to plug my crossword blog lucky streak xwords where I post mainly themeless puzzles. My personal favourite so far is themeless seven so if you want a feel for what my puzzles are like I recommend you start there. Thank you!
