About Me
I am a writer turned registered nurse who also happens to write. I grew up in Oxford, Mississippi, land of William Faulkner and the inspiration for Yoknapatawpha County. I feel a drive to write everyday even after a 12 hours nursing shift, so I figure that's something to run with. I want to grow as a writer and connect with people through my writing. I regularly blog on health and nursing related topics, and I write short stories.
