Author has written 7 stories for Romance, General, and Fantasy.

I love to write, but I also sew, draw, photoshop and design, and spend a good chunk of my time day dreaming and trying not to run into things.

Story writing was something I started in middle school. I met a girl that could not read very well, and somewhere in my young brain I thought it was just because the reading materials she could get her hands on weren't very interesting. So I thought that writing her a story might help her WANT to get better at reading and the story itself would be something we could talk about. However, once I started putting pen to paper, I was hooked. All through out middle school I had notebooks upon notebooks full of scribbled stories, character drawings, biographies, and random notes I'd thought up. Then my mother bought me an old typewriter and I spent a good chunk of my time writing on that, but it ran out of ink and we never got around to buying a new one.

Then, my mother bought a computer for the house so she could do some of her work from home, and I found that writing from there was far more efficient and I could print off as many copies of the story as I wanted, so I quickly adapted to saving stories to floppy disks and storing them there.

Now, years later, I still write any moment I have--at lunch, after work, and at night if I'm inspired or just having something I want to put to paper.

Though I'm 28, I still find myself getting lost in my head, thinking up characters that I feel are inspiring or just plain different. I love putting together plots that change in direction as they go, and I'm most fond of stories that don't end the way everyone thinks they will. Above all, I enjoy a story with real CHARACTERS that have many different sides to them and never once fit into one niche. Because there isn't a person on Earth that is only EVER a good person, or only ever a bad one. We're just people, trying to survive the only way we know how--through our experiences and the knowledge we've collected. So I try to make my characters exactly that--like real people.

The only advise I can offer anyone that might want to learn how to write, is to not restrict yourself to anyone else's style of writing but yours. I've had plenty of people try to nitpick at my grammar, my use of words or commas, but in the end I'm writing the scene as if I'm living it, and I want you...the readers, to feel it the same way. As if you're there, experiencing it like I am.

Don't be discouraged if people tell you they don't like your story, or your characters. Not everyone will.

But if you like your story, and YOU like your characters, than as a writer that's all that matters.

Enjoy the story as you would have it told.

And soon, there will be readers that enjoy it too.

Change Me - Story 1 - Hope
So one day, I was looking through a disc full of old stories and discovered quite a few short stories that never got to see the light of day. My hope is to post them here for your enjoyment. Some of them talk about suicide, bullying, but ultimately they are intended to inspire and change the way people view things. Thus I've aptly named the stories "Change Me". Sit back and Enjoy!
