Author has written 14 stories for Humor, Family, Young Adult, Essay, General, Love, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Historical, and Romance.

I live in a small town in western Pennsylvania. It's home to a pretty conservative bunch, but I manage. I've got my people, my support group, my loved ones.

I am a voracious reader, and I've been writing poems and stories in the margins of my math notebook since middle school.

In my downtime, I partake in high school theatre (I'm a member of costume crew), sing in chamber choir, watch black and white movies where the actors speak way too fast (personal favorite: Mr. Smith Goes to Washington), hang out with my friends, and play with my cats (Rosie and Sadie).

My favorite bands/musicians are Typhoon, Lionel Richie, the Beach Boys, and David Bowie (R.I.P.), yet Billie Joel rises above them all. My only wish is to see him in concert before I die (or him, whoever comes first...probably him."). On top of that, I'm also a big fan of musicals. Phantom of the Opera, Rent, Hamilton, Titanic, Sweeney Todd, amongst many others. (The obsession began when I joined theatre last year.)

Since I am such a hungry reader, you're probably wondering what a few of my favorite books are (or not, whatever; I'll tell you anyway): The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Attachments, Speak, Pride and Prejudice, the Harry Potter series, and The Westing Game. That's literally about 0.50% of the list, though. I also LOVE Edgar Allen Poe.

Some of my stories may seem a bit...immature in their writing. That may be because I started writing on this site when I was only thirteen or fourteen years old. I hope my stories got better as I got older...aged like fine wine.

And to top off this profile, here are a few of my favorite quotes:

"It is change, continuing change, inevitable change, that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be." -Isaac Asimov

"Telling a teenager the facts of life is like giving a fish a bath." -Arnold H. Glasow

"Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead." -Oscar Wilde

Live long and prosper,

RAL

The Girl Who Saved a Train
Kate Shelley was a real girl who lived in 1880s Iowa. She really saved a passenger train from crashing into Honey Creek. I would strongly advise looking her up, because she is a truly fascinating and inspiring woman. Also, as a note, I did edit this story so that it read as more of a narrative rather than me just recounting history, but my revisions were minimal. Enjoy!

A Cracked Glass reviews
This is an assignment for my AP English. We were to write a poem using these five words: trust, Starbucks, tenaciously, whisper, and effulgent. Honestly, I wasn't really sure where I was going with this poem. The assignment is due Friday, so...tell me what you think! Likes, dislikes...

Thank You, Jonathan Larson
A very short essay I wrote to my high school theatre director, but sadly never delivered due to cowardice. It contains my suggestion for the spring musical and why I believe Rent should be performed in high schools in general.
