Finally, I’ve set up my own website and started a blog!
I “blogged” on DeviantArt for years, but this is my first time taking it all a step toward personalized and professional. I want to carve a little space that’s all mine in this wide, wild internet. So here I am.
I grew up in San Francisco, and with my passion for reading (Animorphs, anyone? And before that, American Girls) came a passion for writing. My first attempt at a novel was a historical fantasy written when I was twelve. Needless to say I never finished it, but it got the writer roots burrowing into me. After writing some short stories, and especially after reading McCarthy’s The Border Trilogy, I started my first serious novel, the all-alien drama Sapphires, at sixteen. I finished it when I was twenty-two. Hey: high school, moving a few times, and getting two bachelors degrees takes a lot of time out of your life. I think six years for a first novel isn’t that bad in the grand scheme of things. And don’t worry, I’ve become much, much faster at writing.
Presently, I’m a Project Manager at a lab in Sacramento. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart, Brian, for three years. We had our first baby back in May, a beautiful bouncing boy named Nathaniel. I recently finished the final draft of my third novel, the post-apocalyptic genderbender Y Negative, and submitted it to a contest. I knew being a mother would be challenging, but also working full time and trying to maintain a writing career as well? Hahaha yeah, I don’t need sleep, right?
I look forward to sharing some of my thoughts on writing, society, art, and life in general with you all.
Thanks for reading <3
