Growing up, I was always the quiet girl who knew everyone but never quite fit in. I kept busy with dance, cheerleading and numerous other activities. I was an overachiever, a hard worker and very dedicated to anything I pursued. When I decided that I loved writing enough to follow along the writer's career path, nothing deterred me from reaching my goals. I didn't go to college straight out of high school, but rather focused all my free time and energy into my stories. Negativity could not steer me off the path of my dreams. It only made me more determined to succeed as a writer. Now, with a loving family to support me, I continue to do what I love most: Write from my heart and share my stories with the world.
