• So happy to have finished du•al•ism's first draft! Trying to save up a few extra bucks so I can put up I'm Sorry on PageToFame again.

    Please check out my website, Whisper Box, which has a blog and excerpt from my novels, that usually gets updated every Wednesday night: http://www.whisperbox.com/

In short

  • I'm a teenage author who's trying to get her feet wet in different genres while still establishing a style. My biggest strengths are dialogue and characters. My biggest weaknesses clarity and plot.

    Someday, I want to a freelance editor, since I enjoy working with other people's work more than my own sometimes.

  • I know this might sound cheeky, but it's the truth: I want to change people's lives. I want to write stories that will make people step back and think: "Wow. I never realized I had so much."

    I don't want to write characters you can imagine yourself as. I want to write characters that make you appreciate who YOU are.
