Author has written 15 stories for Humor, Young Adult, Essay, General, Love, Historical, Play, Friendship, Fantasy, General, and Romance.

I was born and bred in Grove City, Pennsylvania, and I am currently attending Point Park University as a creative writing major (who could've predicted that?) Books and writing are my life. My blood is the ink from a blue Pilot G2 pen, my skin the coffee-stained paper of an old library book. Some of my favorite school memories involve me reading Harry Potter in small increments under my desk, or scribbling silly little poems in the margins of my math notebook.

Some of my favorite books are the Harry Potter series The Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Westing Game, Like Water for Chocolate, The Ables, Emma, Speak, The Handmaid's Tale, Attachments, Flowers for Algernon, and 20th Century Ghosts (a short story collection).

My favorite music to listen to while writing is the Family Tree albums by Radical Face (The Roots, The Branches, and The Leaves), as well as the soundtracks to various Broadway musicals. (I was a part of theatre in high school.)

For now, I'll leave you with this quote by my Queen Jo: "Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic, capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it."

A revision of a poem I wrote years ago, inspired by the classic Greek love story of Penelope and Odysseus, told from the former's perspective. Partially inspired by Anne Sexton's collection Transformations.

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!

I tried my hand at a sonnet. (The last two lines are supposed to be indented, but for some reason, that's not showing up.)

Thank You, Jonathan Larson reviews
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.
