I've been a storyteller since I was very small. I used to lie in bed at night and spin adventures in the dark as my sisters listened, sometimes stretching the parts of the stories out across several days. It's been a long time since then, but I've saved my dream carefully and now I want to learn to write out the stories that won't leave me alone.

My influences include Mercedes Lackey, Andre Norton, Anne McCaffrey, Patricia A. McKillip, Isaac Asimov, and Robin McKinley. I want to write like them when I grow up.
