I have a BA in English Education 7-12
I'm an English teacher.
I'm a Sigma Tau Delta girl!! Pen and Torch! (Sincerity, Truth, Design!)
Writing has become my second life. It and reading are my passions.
I love movies. Old and new.
I'm crazy. But we all go a little crazy sometimes, right?
I love to dance. I took ballet for 14 yrs, jazz - 13 , & pointe - 8.
I love music it's what gets me through, regardless
I sing anytime I get the chance. I can be tone-deaf, but, who can't?
I scrapbook and cross-stitch, which are both great stress relievers.
I love taking pictures, and am a fashionista.
I have an amazing husband.
I listen to all kinds of music; just ask if you're curious.
I love quotes. Favorites :
<3 We are all a little weird and life's a little weird. And when we find someone who's weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
<3 Writer- A person who creates with words vast worlds either through facts or pure imagination. A true writer that is committed to his/her work writes with their heart in order to bring what is truly their spirit to life.
Most importantly I have a son named Bentley (1.29.13)
The Dying Rose has a word count of 77,249 (rough draft finished)
I finished my first book!!
And my first collection of poetry!
One of my stories has over 170,000 reads! Ohmigosh!
Oh me oh my!
?? Well it depends on what you call fame. To some I am famous, to others I am not. But thats not what matters. What matters is bringing light, and a place to explore themselves and maybe even knew ideas to people. I am proud to say I have been a top writer for 4 months straight, and my story has peeked the top 114 fantasy stories on Wattpad! and was at 940 in the What's Hot, having over 50,000 reads!
I also had a horror short story go all the way to #1 on Wattpad!
