In short

  • I'm the kind of girl that likes to run in the dark and sleep with the light on. When I'm not at school or work, you will generally find me hunched over my laptop, fighting my cat for the keyboard. I'm a senior university student, graduating with a BA in Creative Writing. When I was twelve years old, I decided I was going to write for a living, and fourteen years later, I still haven't lost the drive. I am currently the Editor-in-Chief for Southern Utah University's literary journal, the Kolob Canyon Review, and have had a CNF short story and several poems published. Writing was my past, is my present, and will be my future. I'm excited to get started with this web community for writers and readers!
