Author has written 4 stories for Romance, and Fantasy.

Hey everyone,

My name is Crystyl and I have a passion for writing. I'm 28 and live in Utah, USA. I have published a few stories and have a few more on the way, so hang on for this crazy ride! My favorite thing about writing is when the characters seem to take over the story and do their own thing; it seems to be a surprise to even me, and I'm writing it! I am currently a student at Southern New Hampshire University and am studying for my Bachelors in Creative Writing and English.

A little more about me: I LOVE the color purple, Italian food, listening to all sorts of music, crafting, cosplay (especially Steampunk), jewelry making, quoting movies, and reading fractured Fairy Tales.

Thanks for checking out my stories, I would love some feedback!

Cheers!
