Hi! I live in southern California with my husband and
three four kids. I’ve been writing since 2010, when I first discovered the awesome idea that is NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) and dived in.
I was born in Austin, Texas and grew up in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. I went to a small engineering university in East Texas where I met my husband. I mistook my love of historical fiction for a love of history, so I majored in Political Science… It only took me about five years to figure out my mistake!
Some of my other favorite things:
Reading – I like space opera, dystopias, romance, fantasy, and almost all young adult fiction
In-N-Out Burger – it’s a (largely) California thing
Quilting – It’s sewing with no nasty sleeves or curvy necklines to mess with
Rubik’s cubes – I can’t create my own solutions, but I read about other people’s algorithms and try to learn ’em which is still really hard! There’s whole clubs about those things – crazy.
My favorite shows: Big Bang Theory, Community, Elementary and Sherlock (don’t even get me started about which is better – they’re too different!), Arrow, Agents of Shield
At the moment,
I’m trying to finish my epic (by which I mean long) Jane Eyre-inspired contemporary romance. HAHAHA! Past Corrie was so optimistic! So young and naive. Well, Jane Eyre chewed me up and spat me out. Maybe I shall attempt it again someday when I’m a better writer! Now I am working on a generation ship adventure loosely based on Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast. It’s a lot of fun and I’m not having dreams of angry Brontes. Phew.
Thanks for stopping by!
