Hello fellow wattpaders! Love being here! I've always been an avid reader, everything from Watership Down to Interview with a Vampire to Anne of Green Gables to the Guide to Green Hope Flower Essences. I also love to sing and am a professional jazz and variety singer and Marilyn Monroe tribute artist; You can hear some professionally recorded examples of my music at . If you like Jazz or Christian music, you'll probably like listening.

I'm semi-vegetarian (meat once or twice a week) but I eat a fair amount of dairy, and will probably never be a vegan. My main food addiction is dark chocolate. I'm currently 35, no kids or pets. I don't mind going to the beach or movies alone, but also enjoy socializing with small groups of friends, preferably over food. I love travel and adventure and do as much of it as I can afford to (which isn't nearly enough). I recently became certified as a yoga teacher, and am excited and scared about teaching my first

I've finished my work "Reckless Lives" in the historical fiction genre (Old South) here on wattpad, and am just finishing up the sequel "Ruin and Redemption" to give you the whole story. "Reckless Lives" is sort of a cross between a gothic romance and a coming of age novel. It's influenced by "Interview with a Vampire"; "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Anne of Green Gables". I also have some short stories in the sci-fi and fantasy genres which are worth a read.
