Writing has always been my heart song, and it all started with a 6 page “book” I illustrated myself when I was about 11. That blossomed into a 30-some “book series” based off of a My Little Pony farm managed by Beanie Babies. I’ve always been a dreamer and completely engulfed in fantasy, but I haven’t always written. After I got my heart broken for the first time, I stopped writing for years. Ironically enough, it was heartbreak again that drove me back to writing. Looking back, I can see the steps in my life that led me back to writing.

“You’re the best thing that ever happened to me.”
