A bit about me: I love backpacking, hiking, and anything with a fire ring. I can't cook for the life of me... I burnt mac and cheese once (the microwavable kind), but I try. If there's a loose cord around, I'll trip over it. I also tend to over-analyze everything... like what to put in this About Me section. Hope ya like my stuff.

I posted my novel, Before the Sky Fell, on this site a while back. The Wattpad community bugged me for updates, encouraged me to push on, and even influenced the plot. Now I've become a Wattpad Prize 2014 winner, been a featured author, and more recently, snagged an agent. It's been an awesome journey and I can't wait to see where it leads.

I have also served as a Wattpad Ambassador. If you have any questions, issues, whatever, send it my way and I'll make sure it gets to the right person.

"We talked civilization into teaching 98% of people to be literate enough to scan with their eyes these squiggles on these pages and to decrypt these incantations that we're the masters of. To decrypt them into star-spanning explosions, deep human insights, and emotions and all these things. We're the magicians, we're the reliable, product-delivering magicians." - David Brin
