I love to read and I love to write.  I hope you do too... isn't that why you're here on the pad of watts?

You won't find a single ounce of fanfic or One Direction baloney here, sorry. If that's what trips your trigger, let me save you some time. What you will find are some stories that were fun to write and I hope fun to read. I write in different genres and don't want to get boxed into just one (probably not the way to wattpad success, but so be it.)

I write about (and read) what I enjoy and what is important to me, but those aren't necessarily the same things. My southern roots show up in what I write and how I speak. I think that may be a good thing.

While I love a great sci-fi/fantasy novel, any writing with a strong story, great characters, and wonderful prose gets my attention.
