Write like you mean it.

My first book was written with pen and wide-ruled paper in elementary school. Now that I’ve upgraded to a computer, I’ve been writing with serious intent since about 2007. I write because I love stories and being whisked away on adventures … and because I have an imagination with no shut off button.

I read a variety of genres and age categories, but my favorite stories have a combination of mystery, romance, and thrills.

While writing, I find it nearly impossible to create stories without an element of mystery. I love twisty plots, red herrings, and characters who aren’t as they seem. I never fully trust my characters, and neither should you.

Other random facts about me: I’m an October baby and have always loved all things Autumn–cool weather, crunchy leaves, fuzzy socks, and black coffee. I hate to cook, love to bake, and don’t make my bed every day.
