If someone were to ask me
what I am, it could be
summed up in one, simple
word: Dreamer. Ever since I
was a small child my
imagination has run wild. I
have been telling stories for
as long as I can remember,
creating grand worlds in my
head and going on
adventures that were
invisible to others around
me. Am I eccentric? Yes. Am
I proud of that? Absolutely.
I write about the things that
inspire me, both in this
world and in realms only
seen with the imagination.
My heroines are sassy and
strong. My heroes are
sometimes shy. I have an
obsession with music (and
musicians) and a
fascination with wings. I
believe true love does exist,
and sometimes it is found
in the strangest, most
unexpected places. I also
believe that family and close
friends are the glue that
hold people together.
Above all things, I believe in
being true to yourself and
seizing the day. Life is an
amazing gift. Make your
experience as beautiful as
you possibly can.
