Author has written 36 stories for Friendship, Life, General, Love, Religion, General, and Romance.

What you need to know about me:

-I love God with my whole being. I live, move, and breathe because of Him.

-When writing, I crave pop-tarts. Kinda weird, but totally true.

-I've been writing seriously since I was about 13. I am now 21. At first it was an outlet, a wonderfully sweet escape. Then it became a little more than addictive. And now more often than not, you'll find me in front of my computer lost in the creation of stringing wrods together.

-I love music. First thing I do when I write, plug into iTunes and put the earphones in. Random shuffle is my favorite.

-Some of my favorite bands/singers are: Tenth Avenue North :o), Owl City, Matthew West, Taylor Swift, JJ Heller, Superchick, BarlowGirl, Rascal Flatts, Josh Turner, Casting Crowns, MercyMe, Natalie Grant, Point of Grace, and so many more. AND I LOVE THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA SOUNDTRACK!

-I love crime shows. Criminal Minds is my favorite. :o)

-I'm only human, I make mistakes.

-I've had my heart broken once. This is part of the reason I continued to write through my awkward teenage years.

-I love a good book. I am an avid reader and will consume pretty much any book set in front of me. I have a few favorites, but I just love reading. Keeping lists of books I've read is a favorite past time of mine. My bookshelf is overflowing (literally) with books. Short books, long books, romance, mystery, drama, regency era novels, crime books...anything really. I love reading, which is probably part of the reason I love writing so much.

-I have notebooks upon notebooks filled with random thoughts. Boxes of napkins full of things that I heard of thought of that I just wanted to write down. Most things never really made it into anything I've written, but I can't bring myself to throw any of it away.

-I write letters to people. And I never send them.

-I have a blog. And I enjoy writing entries immensely.

Summertime is magical. Butterflies are good for chasing. Driving fast is enjoyable. Taking a drive, windows down, sunglasses on, sunshine bright over me is my idea of a perfect day. I like simple things. And sparkly things. Sundresses and flip flops. Flowers are just fun. As is playing in the dirt. Long summer days spent chasing a group of kids around all day equals perfection. Big trucks and concerts. Going to the library on a rainy day. Getting lost in the greeting card aisle, I could spend hours there and be fully entertained the entire time. Midnight walmart trips and movies late at night. The anticipation that builds before a new book releases. the anxiety that comes with the anticipation. Going to the store on release day and jumping up and down when I have it in my hands. New book smell. Autumn leaves. childhood memories. Taking pictures. Editing pictures.

-Anyway...that's me in a nutshell. My secrets are written out on the lines of my work. If you wanna know those secrets, just read between the lines.

Some of my favorite quotes:

.: Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe, shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.

:.
We have no right to ask when a sorrow comes, 'Why did this happen to me?' unless we ask the same question for every joy that comes our way.

.:Faith is a living and unshakable confidence. a belief in God so assured that a man would die a thousand deaths for its sake. -- Martin Luther
