Hello there! So nice to meet you! 

I am 29 years old. I love cats, greasy food, sad stories, yoga, and astrophysics.
I'm married, but we don't have kids because they seem like a lot of work. Maybe one day (or maybe not).

I grew up in New Jersey, but I live in Massachusetts now.

I'm a freelance ghostwriter. I specialize in memoir and non-fiction. That means I spend all day writing books for other people. I love to answer questions about ghostwriting. Send me a message if you have any!

I'm also a graduate student, working towards an M.A in English.

I have a B.A. in Creative Writing. I attended Bridgewater State University and Southern New Hampshire University.

My least favorite thing about the field of English/Writing is the pretension. I just don't like being around people who can only read classic literature, or who go around constantly trying to prove how smart they are. Elitism is fucking annoying.
Because this is my least favorite thing, I'm okay with admitting when I don't know something. If I ask you a question and you come back all snooty and "more literary than thou", I'll probably unfollow you and stop reading your books.

Be humble and keep your own ego in check. That's the way I try to live my own life, but I'm sure there are times when I fail and don't realize it.

Favorite Music:
1) No Doubt
2)Emilie Autumn
3)Rocky Horror Picture Show
4)Phantom of the Opera
5)Die Antwoord
6) Little Big
7) MeatLoaf
8) Wagner (especially the Tristan and Isolde Prelude)
9) Black-Eyed Peas
10) Salt N Peppa
11) Spice Girls
12) AFI

Favorite Books
1) Harry Potter (all of them but especially The Goblet of Fire)
2) Middlesex by Jeffrey Euginides
3) Flowers in the Attic by VC Andrews
4) My Sweet Audrina by VC Andrews
5) Female Chauvinist Pigs by Ariel Levy
6)Against Our Will by Susan Brownmiller
7) Unwind by Neil Shusterman
8) Needful Things by Stephen King
9) Villette by Charlotte Bronte
10) The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole
