I am a writer. It's something I've known for a long time. From a young age, I dreamt of being an author. Yet, the idea of crafting an entire novel was incredibly intimidating to me. It felt nearly impossible, and I just hoped I could manage to write one book in my lifetime, probably in my later years.
Then, something happened. I had an idea for a story, and I began working on it, just for fun. I thought it would be a short story, a simple side project while I was finishing up college. This short story transformed into something so much more. It became my very first novel, The Apple Tree, and I could hardly believe I'd written a book. I decided to self-publish it on Amazon, because it seemed doable enough, because this story was so meaningful to me, because I wanted to see if anyone out there might read it and maybe even enjoy it like I did.
The responses I've since received from The Apple Tree have been overwhelmingly positive for me. And now, suddenly, I have six books out there in the world, and I have all these characters and stories living in my mind. I'm thankful to be on this path, to be growing in my writing, and to have readers out there who encourage me to keep going.
I live on the West Coast with my husband and fluffy cat. I am a logophile, a pluviophile, and I think llamas are pretty great, too. When I'm not writing, I enjoy playing the piano, daydreaming, and eating waffles.
I've somehow managed to write six novels in the past few years! Each one has been a rewarding endeavor for me. I hope to write many more stories down the road, so please stay tuned!
I published my first book in 2019.
I'm an independent, self-published author.
I never thought I would have written multiple books before turning thirty! I'm still a little in shock by this.
I am at work on writing more stories. My brain has fallen in love with daydreaming about new characters and their lives.
My husband and I have taken on this self-publishing endeavor as a team. He takes care of all the business details for me, that way I can focus on writing. In case you're curious, I haven't made any money yet. Monetizing creativity is tough!
I love being able to share my writing with others. I'm grateful to my readers for giving me a chance!
