23 - Female - Canadian Army - BA English - Addicted to coffee and travel

Known to be sweetly sarcastic with a healthy dose of cynicism and dark humour. I can strip and assemble a pistol in seconds, drink most civvies under the table and curse like a sailor, but in the same breath, I can rock the shit out of 4" heels and I always cry when I watch Titanic. Life gets boring if you're predictable.

"In this life, it's not what you hope for; it's not what you think you deserve. It's what you go and get."


Current Projects:

FanFiction - After a long hiatus, I have decided to slowly begin rewriting Love of a Spartan. It will have a more mature and realistic outlook. I'm posting chapters as they are completed.

Original Fiction - I have finished the working draft of my first novel and I'm currently playing the tedious waiting game of sending queries to various literary agents. Hoping to get published some day soon. Without giving too much away, it is a romance / drama set in Canada during WWII.


I first joined FF as a tween back in '05. Posted a variety of stories which evolved with my tastes - some were absolutely terrible, some weren't bad. I used FF as a tool to grow as a writer, utilizing the feedback and criticism I received. There were points to improve. There always are. Writing is a skill, and you can always get better.

I graduated high school in '11 with excellence. Obtained a BA in English with a minor in Art History in '16. I'm generally a creative individual, and with that, I found I clashed with the university vibe, finding a lot of classes a bit too structured. I don't like being told what to think. I love making and appreciating art - especially because of how free you can be with it. A blank canvas is so exciting. And of course, I love writing. It allows you that kind of freedom as well. You can create your own world. I think that is fascinating.

At the tender age of 18 I swore the oath to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and joined the Canadian Army, and I still proudly serve today. With almost 5 years of service under my belt so far, it is safe to say that I love it. Being a soldier changed me for the better: mentally, physically, emotionally. Many of my closest friends I met thanks to the army. My love of my life, my rock, my best friend of 3 years I met thanks to the army. I grew stronger, I grew bolder, and I continue to grow every day. It is one of the best choices I have made.

Presently, I live in a small town on the East Coast with my boyfriend and our two cats, 400 meters from my place of work. I try to travel out of country at least once a year - Europe and the Caribbean are always a toss-up. I write, I paint, I dream. I couldn't be happier.
