Writing and reading have been a huge part of my life since I was a little girl. I remember coming up with fantastic stories about haunted houses and Saving Christmas (you know typical childish stories), and reading books such as The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and The Dark is Rising Sequence by Susan Cooper. What really sparked my love of the written word though was the discovery of a site called FanFiction.net when I was in the eight grade.
I remember how excited I was, not only to read stories about my favorite characters, but to have a place where I could post my own stories for others to read. Sure they where badly edited (if edited at all), and full of cliches and mary sues, but it always felt so good whenever someone commented on how much they liked my story. It wasn’t until high school that I decided to begin taking my writing seriously. I closed my fanfiction.net account and began working on my very first original idea.
Almost ten years have pasted since then and I am now married with three wonderful fur children (two cats and a puppy); however, my passion of writing and story telling remains. Now, I want to share everything I have learned on my journey with others who are going down their own path of being a writer, while sharing my love of books as well.

And until then, see you next time!
