Born and raised in Texas, I don't act like much of a Texan. I like cold weather and hate country music. I have a gorgeous husband, two dogs, and a Literature degree from the University of Texas at Dallas. If I'm not at home reading a book or doing laundry, I'm probably at the bookstore, nannying three rambunctious boys, or stuck on the side of the road with car trouble. I'm a reader, a writer, and a bit of a crazy person.

Favorite Books

At the moment: Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen, Girl Underwater by Claire Kells, anything and everything by Maggie Stiefvater.

Favorite Quotes

"Don't think or judge. Just listen." -Owen Armstrong in Just Listen by Sarah Dessen
