Author has written 2 stories for Romance.

I'm a 26 year old college graduate who likes reading teen romances more than books centered around characters my own age.

I have so many great ideas in my head that just don't translate as well as I'd like them to once I write them down - I mean, I majored in fashion, not English or creative writing - so please don't be too critical of my storytelling (or lack thereof)! It's just a hobby, not my calling in life!

I like cats and the color yellow; if I ever found a yellow cat, I would die.

Percipient is the first story I've ever completed, and I'm pretty proud of that fact, although I will admit when I go back through and read it, I find myself thinking, "OMG DID A FIFTH GRADER WRITE THIS?" Even thought it says "Complete" please feel free to review to your hearts content - constructive criticism especially. I understand that it's short, and the pacing is fast (when I realized how it was going to end, I got too excited and then just ended it. I couldn't focus on anything else). So think of this as a very rough rough rough first draft. I've already got some pretty good ideas from reviews about how to fatten this story up! I'm open to suggestions, and I promise one day I'll come back and work on this story when I get a chance.

Southern Comfort is currently on hiatus, I'm sorry to say. I was on a roll after Percipient was completed, so I started posting the first few chapters of Southern Comfort and then realized... I don't know where this story is headed yet, and I don't want to pull words out of my butt just to have something to post.

I also have other stories that I'm working on, but I don't want to start posting them until - ideally - they're finished. But I at least need to have a good understanding of where the story is going so I don't wind up getting stuck on them and then never completing them.

Also, you will come to realize that almost every story I write deals with death in some way, whether it's part of the main plot, or just a side bit of information that explains why a character is the way they are. I'm not entirely sure why, but I guess it might have something to do with my dad dying when I was a senior in high school. I've always heard the phrase, "Write what you know," and that's what I know, so... sucks to be my characters. :)

Percipient reviews
CJ's life has turned upside down; her mom spontaneously remarried, she was forced to move from the house she's lived in her entire life, and now she's got the most annoying stepbrother ever. Oh, and the guy she likes? He's a kind, smart, sexy, and infuriatingly oblivious ghost. She doesn't know how she's going to do it, but she's got to bring Jared back to life, no matter the cost.
