I am an avid reader and writer, and a lover of history. As an undergraduate English literature student, I appreciate the classics: Jane Eyre, Anne of Green Gables, really anything by Jane Austen, North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, the Moonstone, the Hobbit, the Great Gatsby, to Kill a Mockingbird, and Howards End by E.M. Forster. 

I also admire the work of: Lynn Austin, Lisa See, Cora Harrison, Suzanne Collins, Catherine Marshall, Kathleen Grissom, Cora Harrison, Jeanette Walls, Irma Joubert, Lisa Wingate, Angela Hunt, C.S. Lewis, and Julie Klassen.

Other than writing, you can find me hiking with my dog, spontaneously dancing, studying, listening to classic rock, travelling, admiring other people's gardens, practicing my Spanish, spending time with my family and friends, and binge watching whatever Netflix series I am into at the moment.

John 3:16: For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
