Writing has always been in my soul. At the age of ten, I wrote my first poem. It started out as a joke, teasing a boy who had a small crush on me. I can still remember each line, every word by hard. Everytime I think about it, it flows out of me like the first time. After writing that poem I tried my hand at writing other poems and different types of poetry. In high school, I realized that I have alot of fantasies and stories in my head that I wanted to share with the world. In tenth grade I wrote my first novel. Being a romantic teenager dreaming of a great love, of course my first story would be a romance novel. I've been writing different types of stories that fits different phases of my life every since. My new love is teen or young adult novels. I am developing a series about four different girls finding a similar love in music. It is really exciting because I can remember even now reading books and I didn't it to end. I wanted to know more about the characters, to follow their lives more. I decided to make it for teens or young adults because I think we need more books and tv shows where kids act like kids. Today with the type of shows where the teenagers act more adult than their parents, kids today are missing out what it's like just to be thirteen. I can remember the first time I read Nancy Drew or Sweet Valley Twins, I felt connected to the other kids around the world who was sharing the experience.

Interests: Reading works by southern authors, writing poetry and songs, and working on my young adult book series.
