10/23/12 - Yes, believe it or not, I am, in fact, ALIVE (this is starting to be a reoccurring opening line unfortunately :P). I won't lie... life is ABSURDLY busy as of late and will be for a while. I know it sucks, but that's just how it is. However, good news: after months of feeling totally burnt out/writers block-y, had a breakthrough and wrote a significant portion of Ch. 22 today (this chapter is being entirely rewritten basically from scratch for the most part). You'll be happy to know that Ch. 22 was the last of the chapters that I was seriously dissatisfied with, so I'm hoping once this one was posted, we can finally get it up to speed relatively quickly. No promises, though... again, I'm just really busy these days. But I love you all and thanks for sticking with me! Keep your eye out for Ch. 22! :)

1/3/12- Hi! I'm not dead, I PROMISE. However, I have to ask... is anyone else having issues with their document preview thing? Mine only shows up as HTML, which is not optimal for editing anything. Hence, the long delay in posting (since I'm revising, the rest of the chapters are all saved in the doc manager for the sake of ease). Ugh. So frustrating! It's been like this for a while. Hopefully, Fictionpress will get on fixing it.

8/1/11 - Yes, I'm being that girl and have decided to revise/re-post "From the Cradle to the Grave"... but it won't take long, I PROMISE! Please see the author's note in the first chapter for a more detailed explanation. I hope you all will bear with me through this... it's something I just felt like I had to do in order to keep the creative juices flowing! Thanks!


Hey guys! Just a college student who sometimes likes to write for fun... provides a nice break from my busy, busy life. No big dreams of getting published or anything like that--writing is purely a hobby for me. In fact, I think doing it for money would kill any joy/relaxation I found in it. Anyway, hope you enjoy! =)


From the Cradle to the Grave: Nerdy, scrawny Chris was Meredith's favorite babysitter when she was young. Over a decade later, when Meredith is starting her senior year, Chris comes back into her life... and he's now charming, successful, and absolutely gorgeous. As they grow closer, Meredith finds herself falling for him fast. Problem? He's 9 years older. Worse? He's engaged... to a perfect, snobby, frigid ice queen. Even so, Meredith's gut is telling her that maybe, just maybe behind his calm, cool facade, Chris feels something for her too. But things get even more complicated when her ex-boyfriend comes back into the picture... *BEING REVISED*

In Love and War: Ever wondered what it's like... being beautiful, envied, and capable of buying out Chanel with one swipe of Daddy's black card? Enter the scandalous world of Madison DeWinter, socialite New York's infamously wild, hard-partying, big-spending "It" girl with a bad attitude to boot... if you dare. Career-obsessed young journalist Preston Thomas, ruthless and unrelenting in his ambition, goes undercover as her handsome new bodyguard in hopes of writing the ultimate exposé on the upper echelons of Manhattan society... only to discover that there's more to the hardened, cynical Madison than meets the eye. (not abandoned believe it or not)

AND COMING SOON (or sometime in the next 10 years anyway)...

Critical Point: What do you get when you mix an uptight, Yale-bound, overachieving, man-hating "perfect" girl with a charming, witty, and brilliant (but lazy) playboy who sees women as nothing but sex objects? An explosion, of course. Needless to say, it's hate at first sight for the serious, driven, control freak Briana Cooper and the cocky, smooth-talking "bad boy" Jake Cantrell. And when these two polar opposites are sent on a mysterious journey across the globe together in an odd twist of fate, they set off on the adventure of a lifetime with only each other as travel companions, much to both of their chagrin... but that all changes when they begin to fall in love...

Feel free to email or PM me at anytime! I love hearing from you guys. Thanks! =)
