About Me
I began writing in high school. At first it was badly written teen dramas. It wasn't a great start, but it was a start. Eventually, I tried my hand at fantasy, but didn't master it. I wrote poetry and short stories as I tried to figure out what I could enjoy writing and write well. My lifelong aspiration is to publish a YA fantasy novel. I love fairy tale rewrites and anything with a dash of romance. Life keeps me busy as a teacher and a mom, but I write in snippets when the opportunity arises.
Type of Writer
I love to rework fairy tales into novels for teenagers and young adults.
I enjoy reading as much as writing and take my family to the library regularly. I love cooking for my family and take pride putting a tasty home-cooked meal on my table. I also dabble in drawing.
