As of Sept. 2010, I can proudly say I am a published author with Harlequin Books! And it all began right here at fanfiction.net and with Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Thank you everyone who has supported my writing through the years. A special thanks to Nickelodeon and the creators of ATLA, Bryan and Mike, who created this splendid world where I cut my teeth and learned how to focus and tell a story beginning to end.

For all you aspiring writers and fanfic writers: the dream is real, and you can chase it too, as long as you're willing to cry, sweat and bleed. As a certain musical nomad might say, sometimes it's not the destination, but the journey that matters.

Check out my books, available wherever you buy books and ebooks!
