Author has written 16 stories for General, General, Haiku, Young Adult, Love, and Friendship.

ABOUT ME: I am 27 years old and have received a Bachelor's at Utah State University in creative writing. I am hoping to become a published writer. I like writing fictional short stories and poetry.

FAVORITE QUOTES:

Bob Dylan: "A hero is someone who understands the responsibility that comes with his freedom."

Confucius: "He who learns but does not think, is lost! He who thinks but does not learn is in great danger."

John Lennon: "I believe in everything until it's disproved. So I believe in fairies, the myths, dragons. It all exists, even if it's in your mind. Who's to say that dreams and nightmares aren't as real as the here and now?"

Marilyn Monroe: "If I'd observed all the rules, I'd never have got anywhere."

Mark Twain: "A man is never more truthful than when he acknowledges himself a liar."
