Oh lord… I don’t like writing these. I guess I’ll just suck it up, feel free to poke me if I ramble.
I’m a YA fantasy (high, urban, soft sci fi on occasion, I play in all the sandboxes) writer, with a Masters Degree in Professional Writing and Bachelors of Arts in English (Literary and Cultural Studies), with a minor in History, cum laude. I’ve always loved YA fiction and fantasy, and I have a lot of ideas that I can’t wait to get out there in the world. Some of my favorite books include anything by Tamora Pierce, the Valdemar books by Mercedes Lackey, Bruce Coville’s Unicorn Chronicles, and The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle. I also like The Dragon Chronicles by Susan Fletcher, the Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent, and Graceling by Kristin Cashore.
Alongside the standard things (such as watching movies, having my nose in a book), I also play RPGs–Role-Playing Games. I don’t just mean the video games, though I am an avid Final Fantasy, Pokemon, and Zelda fanatic, but also forum and tabletop RPGs. They’ve given me so much experience as a writer, dealing with character creations and interaction. My group mostly runs Pathfinder 1.0, me and another are playing with BESM, but I have played traditional DnD 3.5 and 5e.
Last bits of personal details: I live in the OKC metro area (ish), would love to travel but… I have two very wild but dear housemates.
Kari is an anxious mess, this is just her sweet face, and Karu is very sweet, very nervous, and now has to be very closely monitored. This pic is older when Karu was younger, I’ll update it…eventually. (Both of those are nicknames. I only named the Digimon cat, the Ouran High School Host Club cat came named that way. It was not on purpose that I became one of those people whose cats are one letter apart.)
(For those who remember my Moon Kitty, Tsuki died June 9th, 2018, from a heart attack.)
I also edit my friend Ginny Zero’s books. At this time, I’m not taking on new clients unless you manage to be very persuasive, since I have a lot of pans in the fire.
