I am a fiction writer. I gravitate towards writing horror and paranormal stories. I occasionally dabble in poetry and I once wrote a children’s story.
I love to read. My love of reading started with V.C. Andrews and J.K. Rowling. Since then I’ve developed new favorites Stephen King, Gillian Flynn, Holly Black, Saralee Rosenburg, and Lindsey Behee. Although I find new favorites all the time.
I’m currently working on what I hope to be a novel with the working title of The Tithe.
I feel I get in my own way, I procrastinate. Carving out time to let the creativity flow can feel overwhelming, but when I just sit down and let the words flow, I feel in my zone. I’m also a stay at home mother and wife so finding balance between writing and family responsibilities is a line I at times struggle with.
You can do this! Believe in yourself and just start writing! It may seem overwhelming and scary but anything worth doing can be overwhelming and scary. If I can do it so can you. Even if nobody reads your work that’s ok, do it for you!
I would love to inspire someone to pick up a pen and start writing if that’s something they’ve put on the back burner. Be open to your creativity! Paint, write, explore the world through the lens of a camera. Be creative it’s worth it.
