Author has written 20 stories for Historical, Essay, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, General, Play, Fable, and Humor.

I'm eighteen, and obsessed with writing. I'm now a senior at Inglemoor High School. I also work as a medical records clerk/filer at a diabetes and endocrinology clinic. My days are currently otherwise occupied by applying for scholarships and college, and working on my extended essay (kind of like a high school thesis, you might say) on hemophilia and the Russian Revolution. When doing stuff for fun, I write fiction (mostly novels), Irish dance, play violin and piano, extract and index for FamilySearch, do geneology, study languages and linguistics, apply for colleges and scholarships, clean my room (it's a hobby) and play with my siblings. I am currently a certified nurses' aid, and intend to attend Brigham Young University next year majoring in Nursing and Linguistics with a minor in Communication Disorders.

I love reading and writing fiction of all kinds. The only writing I can't stand is those trashy romance, horror, thrillers, et cetera. My favorite books are East of Eden (by John Steinbeck), A Tale of Two Cities (by Charles Dickens), To Kill a Mockingbird(by Harper Lee), Middlemarch (by George Eliot), Jacob Have I Loved, Bridge to Terabithia (both by Katherine Paterson), Treasure Island (by Robert Louis Stevenson) and North and South (by Elizabeth Gaskell). My overall favorite writers are Katherine Paterson, Charles Dickens and George Eliot.

If you want other writing, just search for the author IBtired. She is my sister, so our writing will probably be similar. :) She claims that our writing is not similar, however, wouldn't it follow that if we grew up in the same household, we would speak the same way, and therefore write the same way? Anyways. Not to start a sibling war through profiles.

I will proudly tell you that none of my titles, on or off this site, involve the words "black," "blood", "pain", "rain", "thorns" or many of the other cliches.

For those of you who liked my novels. I'm sorry. I took them all off. I'm still writing them, and it's not that I don't like them, it's simply that I can't have people constantly asking when I'm going to update when what I really need to do is finish something, or polish some old chapters, or completely destruct and reassemble some old chapters, or maybe I'll have a hard time in life. I'm sorry. If you really loved my characters so much that you can't live without knowing what happens to them, you can email me, and I'll tell you how they turn out (if I know) or I'll send you regular updates privately, as they come.
