I’m originally from and currently staying in Portland, OR, but I spent over a decade in sunny Florida. I’m a big fan of sunshine, warmth, and actually being able to swim in the ocean when I visit the beach – if there must be a contest, Tampa wins hands-down, but Portland certainly has its charm. I have been storytelling since before I could write. When I was younger, I’d either force an older family member to write down whatever story I was weaving, or I’d enjoy scaring my younger siblings by telling them a creepy story. Though I still do both of those things on occasion, I’ve graduated to more sophisticated forms of writing and have released my first novella as of January 22nd, 2019. I have a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Central Florida and a M.S. in Learning Design & Technology from the University of South Florida.
