In short

  • How does one describe oneself in a tiny box? I feel that I am evolving everyday! You could call me a tad eccentric, for I can be a little outlandish and goofy at times. I love to laugh and enjoy life, but also have a deeper philosophical side. I am always thinking. When I am not talking, I am quietly contemplating to myself. I am over analytical, and it can drive me crazy, but that's just how I am. I have a lot of interests and am a very dynamic and free thinking person. I have seen dark times and know how it feels to despair. But never give up HOPE! God guides me through the way. I have learned that being broken can be beautiful. Hard times are what form one into a stronger, better, more compassionate person. I am thankful to the Lord for healing those wounds and helping me through. Life is a journey, an adventure, a quest...for truth, for knowledge, for faith, for hope, but most of all we live to LOVE.

  • II can't really say this is a claim to fame, for I have no real desires of achieving fame, but know this..I've always known I was different.  While other children aspired to be successful athletes, singers,or musicians, I was huddled away in a corner writing.  Little did the world know, the fire was burning inside: my flame for forming words into art.  Whether I possess the talent needed for writing or not, I will never give it up.  Writing is engrained in my soul, instilled in my entire being as a second nature.  It's my brandy after a long day, my solace, my anguish, my joy; writing is my everything.

  • Walking the Bible by Bruce Feiler....very interesting piece iin which Feiler visits historical places in the bible.  He enters his journey from a non-normative stance, only to experience a piece of history.  The journey becomes more of a spiritual growth as the novel continues. (very interesting)
  • My bed, the coffee shop, the couch, the library...It doesn't matter where one reads because the book takes you to another place, a place of the mind...that's the miracle of books...they are portable and you can take them anywhere you go.
  • Fiction: Literary, Political, Religious/Inspirational, Women's Fiction

    Non-Fiction: Memoir/Narrative Non-fiction, Politics & Current Affairs, Religion, Women's Studies

  • "It is a truth universally acknowledged" that I would like to be Miss Elizabeth Bennet from Pride and Prejudice...she is so spunky, witty and strong.  Additionally, she gets to find out that ravishingly handsome Mr. Darcy is not so bad fact, he is quite the opposite.
  • Jane Austin, Travis Thrasher, Charlotte Bronte, Charles Dickens, C.S. Lewis, Bruce Feiler, Soren Kieerkegard, Camus ...the list goes on.
