Author has written 33 stories for Nature, Life, General, Friendship, Family, General, Love, and Essay.

Delilah Brightman is a name I stole from my imagination; my character, to be exact.

I am a teenage girl living in a bustling city with a love for life and a passion for words.

I love the smell of the rain and the sound of it when it pounds on the roof, lulling you to sleep.

I love the feel of dew on my feet when I run around my backyard in the early morning.

I love my family and I love my friends, who become family.

I love creativity and challenges; experiments and solutions.

I love reading and writing and learning.

I love to discover and I love to explain.

I love curiosity and spellcheck, it is my best friend.

I love nature and the wonder of the world.

I love how the earth itself pulses with energy, just like a heartbeat.

I love vintage clothing and cheap clothes.

I love antiques and plays and my eight porcelain dolls.

I love dried roses and old-fashioned quilts.

I love to laugh and I love to love.

All my work is dedicated to my fifth grade teacher who encouraged my affair with the fictional world and turned a dreamer into a writer.

The World as We Know it by TheyCallMePotataSalad reviews
As I scanned the horizon, I remembered the books I once found, pictures of this exact horizon, once filled with buildings that touched the sky, gleaming with profound arrogance; like giant knights in shining amour, standing before the sun. That horizon was long gone, replaced by a dark, melancholia decay. Much of the world was that now; a dark, endless decay.
