I have been reading since I was 3 years old and writing for as long as I can remember. When I am not doing either of those things, I can be found playing piano or relaxing at home with my husband and our fuzzy children. We have three gray cats, Gir, Dib, and Zim and a dachshund/terrier named Ranger.

 

I do sometimes put down books and do other things as well. I enjoy watching movies with friends and family. My favorite is The Little Mermaid and has been since I was 2 years old. Some of my other favorite movies include Dirty Dancing, Mean Girls, Pitch Perfect, and Guardians of the Galaxy to name just a few.

 

I watch my fair share of television shows as well. My all-time favorite TV show is Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The other shows that I watch repeatedly include Friends, Angel, Grey's Anatomy, The Office, Parks & Rec, Modern Family, and Downton Abbey.

Favorite Books

 

There are two books that I go back and reread time and again. I reread more books than I probably should, but these two never get old.

 

1. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith

2. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë

What I Write

 

I have been reading and writing for as long as I can remember. The first book I can remember ever writing was called "The Tricky Leprechaun" which I also illustrated myself. I believe this was in first or second grade. 

 

Since then, I have branched out a bit on what I write including:

 

Poetry

Blog Posts

Short Stories

Novel - work in progress

Favorite Authors

 

The criteria for being a favorite author has different parts to it, it really depends. So there are a few categories of favorite authors.

 

There are books I adore because they are so well put together and beautifully written that I feel the need to savor each page, like dark chocolate. I tend to read these books more slowly to make the book last longer. I will also reread these books because they are usually few and far between. My dark-chocolate authors include: Tracy Chevalier, Charlotte Brontë, Betty Smith, and Charles Dickens.

 

Then there are authors that write such fun books that I can't help myself, I need to devour them. These almost always fall into the chick-lit category. I wouldn't call these classics, but the books are a lot of fun and these authors are my go-to when I need to cheer up or lighten up, like when I watch Disney. My cheer-up Disney authors include: Sophie Kinsella, Charlaine Harris, and Janet Evanovich.

 

The last category consists of authors that are able to sweep me away to another world in such a complete way that I will miss the world revolving around me. These authors include: Brad Parks, Christopher Pike, Stephen King, and Ken Follet.
