First thing to know, MANY of the books on my profile are ROUGH first drafts. Eventually, they will be edited and reposted so bear with me.

Stay-at-home mom to a crazy, free-spirited toddler, aspiring author, lover of all things chocolate, Grimm addict (the show and the tales), and professional smarty pants.

Some people call me snarky, bitchy, and introverted (like it's a bad thing?) - I say I'm brutally honest and observant, but who am I to judge? Some people say I'm super nice, but I'm not so sure. I'm a ginger, cut me some slack.

Sometimes I'm funny, but I specialize in sarcasm and eye rolls. I love a sadistic villain with a great redemption arc.

I may or may not have a slight love affair with coffee (maybe). And chocolate. And good food in general.

The Oxford comma will never die! (Welcome to my random, wandering mind.)

I can't be held responsible for anything I do or say if Chace Crawford is involved. (Or Nathaniel Buzolic if I'm honest).

Yes, I write some teen fiction, but I'm not a teenager (sorry to disappoint).

Life is hard, but if you give it a chance it'll give you what you need. I know because God tells me so.
