Writing has always been my underlying passion in life. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and a formal minor in Sociology, as I felt understanding and studying human behavior on the individual and collective level, would apply to anything and everything I chose to do in life. I have three special girls in my life that provide a lot of inspiration for my characters and stories. They are the light of my life.
Identified as being a strong writer for my age at the time, I attended a summer literary writer's camp around age twelve. I flourished and loved every moment of my experience and it has stayed with me throughout adulthood. The desire to write has always been an integral part of who I am and about eight months ago I decided my time is now. I have always been an avid reader of topics from intense young adult fantasy and thrillers to light hearted summer romances. In middle school summers, I used to stay up to the wee hours of the morning reading because I just couldn’t put the book down.
This basic idea, not being able to put a book down, is the principal I have built on while writing my first novel. It has moments of ease, moments of intensity, moments of humor. I strive to offer some of my own personality in my writings. There is a time for sweetness, a time for seriousness, and always a time for kindness and life lessons. My style isn’t made up. It is simply who I am on paper. I hope you enjoy it!
