Author has written 3 stories for Twilight, and Mass Effect.

I feel like I should put something here in case anyone actually reads my story and likes it.

I am a young professional, recently engaged and in the midst of wedding planning to my high school sweetheart :) I studied medieval and early modern history in grad school. I love dogs. I am big into theatre and singing. And, oh yeah, I love to write :) Favorite authors: Robin Hobb, Stephenie Meyer, Ann Rinaldi, Jane Austen, George R.R. Martin, Tamora Pierce, Juliet Marillier...the list goes on and on. Hope you like what I write!
