Author has written 5 stories for Phantom of the Opera, and Twilight.

"But his voice filled my spirit with a strange, sweet sound. In that night there was music in my mind. And through music my soul began to soar! And I heard as I'd never heard before..."

My name is Kaitlyn and I'm a 24-year-old graphic designer. Other hobbies include watercolor, illustration, photography, and (of course) writing! Current sources of inspiration: Phantom of the Opera (...for 11 years. *sigh*), Ramin Karimloo, Bastille, Lorde, Lana Del Rey, Halsey, Ellie Goulding, Sierra Boggess, Emmy Rossum, Sia, Marina and the Diamonds, tumblr, Europe... the list could go on and on.

Favorite books: Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn, The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky, Wild by Cheryl Strayed, The Harry Potter series, multiple Jojo Moyes novels... Guys, if you're trying to be a better writer, READ—yes, ok, read some fanfiction, but you should also crack open a book. It's insane how much reading will help improve your writing. And books are a great source of inspiration. (I'm big on inspiration, in case you haven't noticed!)

Feel free to chat with me about any and all of these topics! :)
