My love of reading goes back to before I could read. I remember staring at the books sitting in the shelves in our house in awe. I couldn't wait to learn how to read and discover the secrets hidden in their pages. I still love to read - I loved to be surprised, thrilled, shocked, and confounded.  If your book does any of that, I'll love it.

I have tried to be a writer so many times in my life it's embarrassing to talk about. I feel like I finally became a writer the day I started to post on Wattpad. No longer was I muttering stories to myself in an empty room. I was telling them to other readers and writers, who helped me, guided me, and pushed me to be my best.

PLEASE NOTE: I can no longer take read requests, since I barely have enough time to read the books already in my library. I regret having to refuse new requests, but it is taking me a very long time getting to those I've already agreed to read.
