Author has written 2 stories for Law and Order: SVU, and Artemis Fowl.

I'm a twenty-four year-old woman and a huge fan of crime shows. I enjoy Grimm, Bones, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, 2 Broke Girls, Once Upon a Time, and The Big Bang Theory.

I have dark brown hair and Scottish green/blue/gray eyes.

I graduated college with my Bachelor of Arts in English (shazam!!!) and now NOT being in college is driving me nuts! It never ends!! Hahaha.

My favorite genre of music is pop, and my favorite genre of literature is fantasy/magic. I'm generally a very nice person and I like meeting new people, so feel free to start up a conversation with me.

I've recently gotten very into apocalyptic/dystopian literature. Some of my favorites include Angelfall, the Ashes trilogy, The Hunger Games, and Partials. The Wither and Matched series are good, but geared toward a much younger audience and I found the writing incredibly repetitive and a shade juvenile.

Twelve Books Everyone Should Read:

The Gift of Fear and other Survival Signals that Protect us from Violence, by Gavin de Becker (This empowering book will change your life. It changed mine.)

Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, by Susan Cain (The Extrovert Ideal can suck it!)

The Harry Potter series, by J.K. Rowling (Do I even need to give a reason?)

The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls (It's an unbelievable memoir. Her life/family was NUTS while she was growing up!)

Brave New World, by Aldous Huxley (Might want to think twice about creating designer babies in a lab! And I don't mean fertilizing eggs outside the womb; I mean cherry-picking personality traits and physical attributes).

Welcome to the Monkeyhouse, by Kurt Vonnegut (His insightful social commentary, taken to an extreme, will really make you think.)

The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins (Ditto the poignant social commentary.)

Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley (This intense psychological trip through Victor Frankenstein's mind will have you contemplating the meaning of life.)

The Heretic's Daughter, by Kathleen Kent (Especially if you like historical fiction. This one's about the Salem Witch trials!)

Allegory of the Cave, by Plato (It's not anywhere near as long as it sounds. Just a few pages, tops. And fascinating to boot.)

The Princess Diaries series, by Meg Cabot (Because everyone needs a bit of fluff in their lives.)

The Young Wizards series, by Diane Duane ( It's magic! With SCIENCE!!)

Eleven Songs That Rock:

"Breathe"-Michelle Branch

"Blow"-Ke$ha

"Red"-Taylor Swift

"From the Ground Up"-Laura Shigihara

"Bedroom Hymns"-Florence and the Machine

"We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"-Taylor Swift

"Bulletproof"-La Roux

"Jump"-Madonna

"In Pieces"-Lincoln Park

"While Your Lips Are Still Red"-Nightwish

"Stronger"-Kelly Clarkson

Ten Facts:

I have weird spastic fits that most people call the urge to write

I love playing video games where you go on a quest.

My car is blue and is so small it frequently gets lost behind much larger cars

I taught English to ESL students in Thailand for six months

I hate Twilight. I want to shove Bella off a cliff and cackle as she falls.

I can't remember how old I am half the time. I still keep thinking I'm 16.

My friend gave me a stuffed squirrel that I promptly named Descartes. :-D

I'm a total nerd. I wear glasses and love to read and remember what I learned in school and EVERYTHING.

Nine Funny Quotes:

"I'm not even going to ask why you're pimpin' me out for cheese."

"Inside every black hole is a little man with a flashlight looking for a circuit breaker"

"Doctor, I'm thinking of bending at the waist!"

"If I change my mind about living in hell with a man I can't stand, I'll let you know. I'm OUTTA here!"

"Your name is Dumb Bitch TOO? No wonder I keep getting all of your mail!"

"Why do the rudest people always work at the courtesy desk?"

"Some days, it's just not worth chewing through the restraints."

"All those years of war mongering and this is the first time anyone’s ever said thank you!"

"Democrats are sexier; have you ever heard of a nice piece of elephant?"

One Confession:

Words to Live By:

The best revenge is a life well lived.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

An eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind.

The finest steel has to go through the hottest fire.

Don't leave your house without teeth.

Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.

Life is thickly sown with thorns, and I know no other remedy than to pass quickly through them. The longer we dwell on our misfortunes the greater is their power to harm us.

Do not follow where the path leads. Instead, go where there is no path and leave a trail.

I'm not looking up, but I don't see anyone above me.

It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgment, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character.
