DEGREE: I am currently working on a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology
FAVORITES: Harry Potter, Twilight, Hunger Games, Divergent, the Nancy Drew Series, J.R. Ward, Nicholas Sparks, Laurie Halse Anderson, Lurlene McDaniel, Charmed, Buffy, Angel, 7th Heaven, Gilmore Girls, Bones, and recently Hart of Dixie. I love Netflix! Fast and Furious, Mission Impossible, Camp Rock, and Titanic. I listen to Adam Lambert and Backstreet Boys, but my music library has over 250 songs and it keeps growing.
FAMILY: I currently live with my parents (without whom I could not be doing this) and my daughter (age 8) who is the most amazing person in the world (I think I’m biased, hahaha).
WHY, WHY, WHY?: I write because I have seen first hand the power words, especially written, can have on a single person. I have witnessed a few short sentences change a person’s life. I have seen a single story lift someone up from the deepest depression. Words are powerful and as an author, I can wield that power. I write because it is easy and challenging all at the same time. To take my words, my thoughts and transport someone to another time, another place, another world is magical in and of itself. I chose a degree in sociology because, I was thinking about how people interact and sometimes I have problems getting characters to work together or against one another. My thoughts strayed to sociology, which I studied briefly in high school. I think the concepts involved in the social interactions of people with each other and the world can give me an insight as a writer to be able to understand the situations I am not familiar with. I am a writer because words give life meaning, stories can transport us, and happiness is only a chapter away.
