Author has written 7 stories for Young Adult, Humor, and Romance.

I'm a young writer with a long, empty summer ahead of me, so I figured I may as well do something like this. I have no idea if I'm likely to be read up here, but it's worth a shot.

I write primarily to entertain, to tell a story. You probably won't find any deep contemplations of the nature of the universe or pretentious satire of the modern world, unless it's relevant to the story or the characters. Not that those are bad or anything; I'm just not terribly good at them.

I'm an incredibly sarcastic person, but I'm also very honest and genuine - hopefully those things come across in my writing. I try to love every single one of my characters and treat them fairly, allowing them to follow through with themselves to the very end, so if you leave a review, please try not to bash any character, even if he or she has done something awful. Life is messy, and I read and write and watch TV and movies in order to expand my world and understand that context is everything and that nobody has any right to judge anyone else.
