Hello readers! Welcome!
I'm never really good at these bio pages even though they are in essence, a story about myself. Nonetheless, here's some info about me.
I'm a creator, a dreamer, a bibliophile, and a storyteller.
I've been lost in my imagination since I was a kid, and I have notebooks, random blogs, and word documents full of ideas and stories. I'm currently revising my first novel, a middle grade fantasy, so I guess you could call me an aspiring novelist, too.
Writing and telling stories are the call of my heart, but I currently work as a full time High School English teacher, where getting books into the hands of my students is the most important work I can do.

the other important things
Beyond writing stories, I'm a daughter of Christ. I'm also wife to Casey, and we reside in the Midwest with our two literary dachshunds, Darth Daisy and Gatsby-Frodo-Padfoot-Dobby Lore. I know. He is quite ridiculous. But he also prefers his shorter title, Gatsby the Great.
Welcome to my little corner of the world.
(the not-so-short list)
I'm a huge fan of middle grade fantasies and mysteries, but some of my all-time favorite books include: The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, Harry Potter by J.K Rowling, A Wrinkle in Time Quartet by Madeleine L'Engle, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen.
