From the moment I learned "author" was a job, I wanted to be one. Born and raised to two parents in the military, I frequently moved around; everywhere from Fairbanks, Alaska, to Columbus, Georgia; learning different cultures and stories, which translated into my love of writing and storytelling. I wrote my first full length novel at 14 years old- a sweeping dystopian drama about a post-apocalyptic USA- that was, admitedly, ambitious for a fourteen year old. Now, at 21, I have written countless short stories, screenplays, and novels, including the Morbid Tales series, and Hooverville.
I choose to self publish my books because I am still figuring out my favorite genres to write and my author voice. I will continue to explore new genres and styles of writing in the future.
When not writing, I am a full time Swiftie, I love animals, baking, reading, rewatching WandaVision, drawing, and painting. If I could have lunch with any celebrities, they would be Julie Andrews, Michelle Obama, and Elton John.
Right now, I am working on the final book in the Morbid Tales collection, several short stories, and a new mystery novel. More to come.
I would not be able to write, publish, or produce the things I do without the help of my friends and family. Whether it's donations toward publishing, sharing my announcements, offering their services for collaboration, or just offering moral support and kind comments along the way. I appreciate every ounce of it.
