Hi Wattpadders! I'm a bibliophile, writer, freelance meditation instructor, and mom to a five year old girl. Through her, I'm revisiting all the stories I grew up with...and that means plenty of Disney movies. "Ursula's Beginning" is what emerged after watching "The Little Mermaid" with my daughter. Every day. For three weeks. This was in the summer of 2016, and Ursula's backstory took me two years to produce. It is my first novel-length work. 

I have more ideas than time--there are short stories, novels with original characters, children's books, and more adult Disney creations swirling around in my mind. Please follow me to see what's next, and let me know how I can support you here on Wattpad.

Oh, and learn from Ariel--never give up your unique voice! Write on!
