I'm originally from Ohio, lived in Florida, and now am residing in Washington, DC. I work for a company that expedites US passports. Occasionally, when money and time permit, I take classes in Anthropology and International Studies.

I got my first typewriter when I was eight years old and haven't stopped writing since. I used to have to turn in creative writing assignments late or incomplete for middle school, because I couldn't just write one or two pages. Since I was very young, I've been obsessed with ancient history, particularly the mythologies of Ancient Egypt, Greece and the various stories of the indigenous nations here. About two years ago, I began to put those themes that you can find in these beliefs to create Hubris.

Hubris is a story that features a new look at the role of the infamous Sirens of ancient Greece. In the story, they are not just man-eating creatures that lure people to their doom, but the earliest humans that protect modern-day humanity and keep it at a balance. Telese, the youngest of her sisters and the Siren known for destruction of Atlantis and Pompeii, decides to take a stand against the cruelty and violence of their megalomaniac father, Alexandros, when he calls for a purge of humans.

Along with writing and learning about how to get world leaders to play nice in the sandbox together, I also love reading. Some of my favourite authors (in no particular order) are Edgar Allan Poe, Khaled Hosseini, Neil Gaiman and J.K. Rowling. I love paranormal, fantasy and horror, but will read just about anything.
