Author has written 2 stories for Romance.

Hey there!

I don't have much to say, so here's all you need to know about me:

1. I love to write! (Obviously.) But I kind of suck at it usually, so let's hope it's been getting better.

2. I'm just a lost child stuck in an adult body. Well, adult-ish. I really have no idea what I'm doing half the time, just in general.

3. I will often return reviews if I see people have taken the time to jot down a thoughtful review on any of my works. I'm also usually open to swaps (you read something of mine and review, I read something of yours and review)!

4. I love meeting people on Fictionpress, and I've been told I can be a grammar Nazi, so if you ever need any help with editing or you'd like a beta reader, I'm here!

And finally,

5. Nalene Pen is just a pen name (yeah, I know, Pen. Dumb right? Even though I have my reasons). "Nalene" is an anagram of my real name. Kudos if you can guess it.

Yay, 5! My favorite single-digit number. Anyway, that's it. Overall though, don’t be afraid to ask anything or leave a message! I don’t bite…usually.

Evolution by whats-with-humans reviews
It's hard enough being a socially deficient, awkward-as-hell peer mediator, but add to that a stupidly gorgeous and equally terrifying delinquent whose mission in life is to make me miserable, and you start to get a picture of how incredibly screwed I am.

Baby, We're So Close by foxcean
In which it takes a double date, a pair of meddling best friends, a lot of stolen soda, and Tom Cruise to get Maya and Ezra to realize they're so damned sweet on each other. ONESHOT.

How to Play the Villain by EscapistRedux reviews
Eric, heir to a multi-billion dollar fortune, has fallen in love with gorgeous Charlie, who lives on the wrong side of the tracks. Now I've been sent to New York to break them apart. Why? Because Eric and I are engaged since birth. And it sucks because now I have to play the villain or lose everything. I have a clear idea how this ends. Yet I think I'm falling for him. FML

Once Upon a Cliché reviews
What to do when your childhood crush drunkenly kisses you: A: Freak out. - Definitely. B: Slap him and demand what the heck he's doing. - Maybe. C: Kiss him back. - When he's dating someone else? Not to mention a very IMPORTANT someone else? As if! But that's exactly what I did. Fan-freaking-tastic.
