Author has written 9 stories for Kingdom Hearts, Criminal Minds, Chronicles of Narnia, Transformers, and Transformers/Beast Wars.
The name is Natalie and writing is my passion. I have been writing since I was about 6-7 years old and I haven't stopped since. I get my inspiration from movies, TV shows, music, friends, and even my family. I would be lost without the support and love that I have backing me up every step of the way. I am very lucky to have them.
Couple of things you should know about me...
I have red hair and green eyes. (Scottish blood)
I have one sister. (She's older than me... so, yes, I'm the baby.)
I have 2 dogs who are my best friends and will listen to me rant about my stories. (Nick and Riley... or as I like to call them, Thing 1 and Thing 2)
I have a cat named Clary Rey Furchild and she is my baby. :) I adopted her on April 1, 2016.
I am now a junior at Washburn University, majoring in Criminal Justice and double minoring in English and Human Services.
I am a HUGE fan of Transformers. (I don't want even wanna get into that story...)
I love watching crime dramas. (Castle, NCIS, Criminal Minds, CSI... yeah.)
And that's kinda it.
Thanks for reading! :)

21 Tips for Aspiring Writers - from my Creative Writing/Honors English 3 teacher. (Thanks Batman.)
1. Read voraciously; then attempt to use the word 'voraciously' in a sentence. (Go ahead, I dare you.)
2. Write all the time. (Even in your sleep... Just kidding!)
3. Respect the arts. (Don't be hatin' on Da Vinci!)
4. Have friends who write. (And if you don't have any, make new friends.)
5. Don't be discouraged when your family doesn't like something you write. (Everyone's a critic... even if they're family.)
6. Keep a box of interesting crap. (But not the stuff you hide under your mattress.)
7. Have a HUGE collection of music. (Disney, instrumental, soundtracks, pop, rock, Indie... ect.)
8. Be shameless and persistent in promoting your writing. (But not annoying.)
9. Be competitive and confident. (Just don't try to rip other writer's heads off.)
10. Say what needs to be said. (But don't be a bitch about it.)
11. Have another career lined up. (... And a pet detective may not be the best for some if you hate animals.)
12. Develop at least one life-threatening experience. (And yes, being chased by a pair of strange men, screaming after you is life-threatening... especially when you have to hide from them later.)
13. Get tons of education. (The more education, the more experience.)
14. Make friends with many people and many different kinds of people. (And yes, that includes becoming friends with your siblings. Even if you hate them.)
15. Travel a lot. (Just going to your friend's house does not count.)
16. Don't put a story in New York just because you can't come up with a better setting. (And this includes Los Angeles, Chicago, ect.)
17. Write about the Mid-West. (Even if you hate Western.)
18. Make female characters 3-D. (No flatness please!)
19. If readers don't understand your "vision"; don't blame them. You can only blame yourself. (IT'S YOUR FAULT!)
20. Love the craft. (That's always a plus!)
21. If you start writing an idea and find out you hate it, then scrap it. There are more ideas in your brain than you realize. (Believe me, so many scraped stories.)
