In short

  • Hi there! I'm Brigid. I'm seventeen years old, entering senior year in high school. I live with my parents and my five younger siblings. Writing is my life, along with listening to music. :) I also do a lot of reading, drawing, tap dancing, drinking coffee. And there's also school, and homework, and my job at the library, but no one cares about that boring stuff. So, my life is stressful at the moment but it's alright. If it was not for writing I would go crazy, so luckily I'm a writer. ;)

  • Semifinalist in the 2010 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest! Publishers Weekly called my book "a wonderful, thrilling read" :)

  • In math class, in my room, at the kitchen table
  • Well, I've written seven books (Destiny, Soul Stealer, Reborn, Injection, Edge, Walking Shadow, Jump), but they all need quite a bit of editing/rewriting, and none of them are published––although I'm working on that. I have one book (Walking Shadow) that was a semifinalist in the 2010 Amazon Novel Breakthrough Award contest (woot!) Now I am currently seeking a literary agent.
