Reader & Writer



I am 19 and a student at CU Boulder, Creative Writing major. I wrote my first book at 17: 'Social Scenarios Experiment' (shameless plug --> available on BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com [eBook only at this point]). I love to read and write. I've been writing since I was 13 or 14 years old. I love fantasy and adventure books the most. In other news, I like rock and roll, animals, and movies (especially adventures, action, fantasy, and some romantic comedies, when there is action involved too). I have a few pets (because for some reason authors always include their pets in bios), a husky named Nala, two cats named Cleopawtra and Selina Kyle, and a toad named Luke Skyhopper. I also have a twin sister, and two younger sisters. I was born in Chicago, but have lived in Denver for several years.

Favorite Books

My absolute favorite books of all time are the Harry Potter series, by JK Rowling. Without these books (which I've read aprox. 12 times since 4th grade) I wouldn't be the person I am today, that is to say, a book-loving creative writing. Harry Potter got me to love reading and inspired me to write.
