Author has written 29 stories for High School Musical.

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the S'mores of Pop-Tarts, it was the Unfrosted Strawberry of Pop-Tarts. Life as a writer can take you to the most unexpected places. Granted, nothing I write will make me the next Charles Dickens but it could very well just make you laugh.

Being addicted to storytelling has been my thing ever since I could remember. I would lay awake at night thinking of dialogue, plot, conflicts and characters. It got to the point where even if I wasn’t typing or telling my sister these stories I would sit quietly and just think them out to myself. My parents had almost no idea any of this was happening, they just knew I was up to something. Until one day I decided to post my work online and the rest as they say is ... my life as a tortured artist.

This is my Fan-Fiction collection. I spend most of my time thinking of moments in my life and how I can relate them to plots and characters. I have always been inspired by stories, music, movies, books, anything I can get my hands on that has a beginning, middle, and an end.

I work a regular job, fax machines, printers, cubicles, AKA "The real world." I never expected my life to bring me here. I have spent years finding joy in expanding plots others have only hinted at, I have joined together characters from different sources, and sometimes, correcting what I would see as flaws or oversights in the original.

If you want to learn more about me and my writing take a look at my blog Behind The Pages or Follow me on Twitter @Punkpoet69 or Instagram @Punkpoet69 !!
