The story of me, writing, begins with music.

When I was 7 years old, a local high school band came to my elementary school to play us a concert. It was not an unusual occurrence, and it was something that I would eventually do as a member of my high school band.

But that was the day that I became a writer.

I can't recall the songs they played or even the genre of music they chose to play. But I do remember feeling inspired for the first time in my life.

And in that moment, the fantasy world of Omorbia came to life with its first character, Pip the Dragon.

I began with journal writing, but soon I was creating fantasy story drafts and writing poetry. I was addicted to the written world as I also dove into the pages of L.M. Montgomery and C.S. Lewis.

And I knew, as I grew up, that the only thing that I was meant to do in this lifetime was writing. That was my dream.

Throughout high school and college, I took writing courses, won writing awards, and started my first blog.

But chasing dreams, whether or not they are lifelong, has never been easy.

As I completed college, I looked for a way to support myself while pursuing writing. I tried teaching, I tried academia, I took so many different jobs that knock far, far off course.

But no matter how far I strayed from my one true talent, I could never stop writing. I wrote blogs about music, about fashion, and about beauty. I wrote online content as a freelance blogger. I eventually began a career in social media marketing since it involved writing marketing copy.

And I discovered Wattpad.

With Wattpad, I've been able to do what I love most in the world: write fiction. I've found an audience and have had over 100,000 reads of my fictional works. I finally found the courage to put my fiction into the world.

This, to me, is my dream come true. To be able to write and have my writing touch lives. It's all I've ever wanted in this life.
