I write, therefore I am...
I write whatever's on my mind. I have no filter. If I feel it must be written, then I'll write it. The sky is the limit in fiction.
Note: Grey's Anatomy has taken over my life until further notice, so my stories in other fandoms have been abandoned. Sorry!

About: All writers are influenced by their environment. All writers place a little of themselves into their stories, so I'll share a little about me.
Born and raised Iowan, but I didn't grow up on a farm. I grew up in a suburb of one of the state's few metropolitan areas. After high school, I moved two hours from home to attend college. I graduated with my bachelor's degree in 2013.
My eyesight has hindered me from being an athlete. I'm naturally clumsy, so sports and I don't mix well together. I participated in volleyball in middle school and ninth grade; I was the worst simmer on the team during my tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grade years; and I played the clarinet in the marching band. I did have some success on the bowling team, though. And yes, bowling is a sport. I started bowling in fifth grade with my mom and pretty much spent the majority of my pre-teen and teen years in a bowling alley. I made the All City and All District teams during my senior year. Although my sister, who's a sophomore, is already a better bowler than I was as a senior.
I was the nerdy girl who aimed to get all A's. English, History, and Psychology were my favorite subjects in school. My interests have shifted as I've grown older. I wish I would have discovered Grey's Anatomy in high school, because I'm much more interested in anatomy and science because of it. I struggled with science in high school, and I think I would have understood it better had I watched Grey's then.
Traveling is a blast; I love seeing new scenery. I long to live away from my home state. Often I feel like I was born in the wrong part of the country -- I'm an east coast girl at heart, though family is very important to me and it's hard for me to imagine living somewhere that's not within reasonable driving distance of my family.
I have degrees in business administration and media communication. Presently, I'm a Social Media Coordinator at an organization that provides information and resources for families with children who have all types of disabilities. My mom is a special education teacher, so that's how I got into this line of work. Also, I was born with congenital cataracts (which means my lenses were clouded). Meaning, I was born legally blind. I've had four surgeries, and now I just wear glasses to read.
My true dream is to publish a novel. Screenwriting is a writing style I've recently become interested in as well. I've been writing since I was nine years old, though I sort of shoved it aside in high school and college because of the 'starving author' stereotype, and I wanted to do something less risky with my life. Writing is what I fall to when I'm struggling to make sense of the world around me and my future. It's my passion, it's what makes me feel complete. My life revolves around storytelling. I love burying myself in a pile of books and spending endless hours watching Netflix. I feel like fiction holds all the answers I need in life; I just need to find the right book (or write it, if it hasn't been written yet).
Fun fact: In fourth grade, my friend and I co-wrote a sequel to the movie Kate & Leopold. I don't know what happened to the script, but that was my first experience with screenwriting. I co-wrote a story on FictionPress with one of my Internet friends in high school: The Face You Can't See. It's a story about two high school girls who meet in an online chat room and don't know they know each other in real life.
The concept of the novel I'm currently writing was conceived when I was eleven years old after I attended summer camp. I also have another novel that I've been outlining since I was nine years old.
Shonda Rhimes is my idol. Many of my stories tend to be on the dark side. I'm a big fan of pushing the limits and tackling the unspeakable. I write about death a lot. My father passed away in our home when I was four years old. Death became a part of my life very early on, and I've learned to embrace it. Grey's Anatomy has taught me that it's okay to be dark and twisty, and it's okay to be misunderstood. We're all unique and deserve to be loved.
