The hopeless romantic in me likes to watch soap operas by day and write romance by night. I am a dreamer. But in real life, I'm twenty-something, working toward my B.A. in Psychology. I spend the majority of my free time baking, tanning, hanging out with friends, and going to the gym.I'm obsessed with FoodNetwork, sushi, baking cheesecake, and buying lots of cute dresses and skinny jeans. There's a lot of stuff going on in my life, but writing factors in there somewhere, too.

10/23/2010: I'm baaaaaaaack. Yes, I am still alive. It took me far too long to find my way back to FP. I wonder if I even still have any readers?? It's been awhile; I understand if I've lost more than a few along the way -- after all, I'm not very reliable, am I? I have been VERY busy with school and internships and planning for my future and everything else in between. My post to Letters to You is the first thing I've written in over a year, and it's not even very good, but it's something. I'm trying to find my way back to writing, trying to find my voice again. We'll get there. I haven't forgotten about Reality Check or my re-write of For the Love of the Game.
8/18/2009: Chapter 2 up for Reality Check!! I also added character photos of the characters I've introduced so far on the website (see the link at the top of this page) - more will be added as the story progresses.
8/13/2009: Taking Down Tanner won for Most Memorable - Complete at the SKOW awards! I totally wasn't expecting that since all the other stories were pretty well-established and much more memorable. But thank you to everyone who voted and for all the support. I love you guys! I have to be honest, I haven't really written anything since Next Best Thing, but I'm trying to get back to my computer. Summer is just too glorious to stay inside and type away, though...
7/25/2009: New one-shot up! Not the most compelling piece of writing ever, but I am satisfied with it because it kept me from studying for at least an hour. Yay for procrastinating! So...will probably edit that one-shot sometime next week since it doesn't seem to fit together very smoothly.
7/21/2009: WHAT. THE. FREAK. I was just on Skow, looking at all the nominees for Round 8 and what should I see nominated under Most Memorable - Complete but TAKING DOWN TANNER! Girlish squeal ensued. Wow, embarrassing. Thank god no one's around. Anyway, thanks to whomever nominated (you totally made my day!!) and if you feel that it really was the most memorable story of all the amazing, very worthy nominees, vote for TDT when the time comes. I'm super honored. TDT was also featured on Undiscovered's Highlighted story a few weeks ago, so that was cool also. I love that my favorite story is getting love!! This means that I'm cranking out a one-shot, as well as planning out my rewrite of FLG. Yes, my dear readers, it's happening again. But it will (for the most part) be nothing like the original. Probably because this one's going to be...organized and planned out before I actually start writing, unlike the first one haha.
Things you should know: I am a notoriously unpredictable updater -- I mean it, I'm awful. So don't expect tơo much but know that none of my incomplete stories are on hiatus; I have every intention of eventually finishing all of my stories. I just don't know when that day will come...=) Also, I've been meaning to rewrite For the Love of the Game, which, looking back, was a solid effort when I was, what, 14 or 15? But now I'm older and wiser and I look at FLG and wonder what the heck I was thinking when I wrote it. And what are people doing, still reading it? It's terrible. There are so many good stories on FP. Please do not waste your time reading it until I've rewritten it. But thank you to everyone who has = It really boosts my ego...hehehe. And thank you to everyone who has read and still reads my work. I still can't get over the fact that people actually want to read the stories I write. It's flattering as hell and very humbling at the same time. I would not be the writer I am today without your support, so I sincerely thank you all!
If you're going to read my works, I encourage you to read Taking Down Tanner (my favorite story, by far, probably because Sam is my favorite heroine) and maybe Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell (flawed, but not a complete train wreck). A lot of people seem to like Your Best Bet, and I had immense fun writing that one-shot =) When I finish TDT, Reality Check is next on my list, and I'm really excited for that. Please, for the love of all that is good in the world, do not read For the Love of the Game unless you want a story that will make you cringe because it is so terrible. I had no idea what I was doing then, and I don't deserve all the support/praise I've gotten for it. I only keep it up to remind myself that I have (hopefully) improved a great deal since writing that when I was in my early teens.
