To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishmentRalph Waldo Emerson
I am Texan. Like, born and raised Texan. Scarily Texan.
I have a deep love for a few things; God, my family & friends, and the English Language. Also, iced tea. I have a weird, deep love for that but I digress. I’ve been writing for…a long time. If I told you how long I’ve been writing, it’d just get weird and I don’t actually know the exact number of years so we’re going to leave it at a long time.
I also love reading, listening to music (my Spotify is a hot mess. I’ll link it as soon as I clean it up), and watching my favorite TV shows (I will gush if you bring up Dean Cain, so…) and movies (I have the entirety of Sherlock Holmes in my head.) My Dad calls me a human USB but if you send me to the store without a list, I will forget everything so I’m not entirely sure how accurate that is.
One thing that some of my best friends can account for is that I am, possibly, the weirdest person you’ll ever meet but I don’t really change so I like to think I’m pretty genuine. Twitter is honestly where I unleash my weirdness. Especially if we get to know each other and I feel comfortable enough with our friendship to send you random messages. So, follow at your own risk but also if you just want to see me be kind of dumb and not at all the way you’d think a published author would be.
I do have previous publishing experience but it’s pretty awful and I’m not really in a sharing mood about it. Maybe, another time. Let’s just say I learned a very hard lesson about vanity publishers.
I’m the type of girl who always has a notebook and a pen. Even if I never actually take it out and use it, if I’m on a roadtrip (hi Dad! LOL!), chances are, I have a notebook and a pen. I also usually have a book in my purse, to the point my Mom has joked that I don’t buy a purse I can’t fit a book in. I also always have my headphones, access to music, and thus, a way to drown out the world which I like to do quite a bit. Writing is my therapy in that way. I don’t always like the world, I don’t always want to hear about every little thing that’s gone wrong or whatever so having that access to a different world, one that I can create and characters that I can give life to, that’s how I process things. Which sounds weird but it’s just me.
Writing is where I’m in my element, where I feel the best.
And, I am an author.
