Meet the Author

I am a 23 year-old hippie who is just discovering what life really is. My heart is entrenched in novel writing. I am pursuing a dream of being a full-time novelist. It's the beginning of a journey that I have always dreamed of. I have risen from a dark childhood of domestic violence. I faced that monster in my closet and am now writing about it. I watched my mother be tortured for almost ten years. I stood before the remnants of the house her ex burned down in a drunken rage. I lived with the aftermaths and the damage it did in the years that followed. Now, I am chasing dreams and living my life to the fullest.Through my writing I want to be an advocate for domestic violence and child abuse, to speak out and be a voice. I am engaged to a wonderful man I met while working on the college newspaper. I am a journalism grad, an author, a sister younger and older, a daughter to a survivor of a mother and my angel daddy, a niece and a wife.I have been writing since I could put a pencil to paper it seems. My first writings were short stories rewriting fairy tales in ways I envisioned them to play out. Poetry was something that intrigued me in junior high school. An interest in Shakespeare came in high school when I attended an outreach school in grades 11 and 12. I was permitted to study on my own and got to drift around with different areas on top of the curriculum already in place. Shakespeare and forensics became the two main things I studied there. It was through Shakespeare's MacBeth and an essay assignment that I got interested in the witch hunts and trials of the 16th and 17th centuries, igniting the idea for the Spellbound series.In 2011, I set a goal. After graduating from college, I set out to publish two of my books. One is my poetry book about domestic violence and child abuse, “She Wasn’t Allowed to Giggle” and the other is the first in a series, “Legend of Kawilara.” My poetry book was self-published back in September and “Kawilara” was self-published in December. Journalism is not quite my thing, as I have discovered. All I really want to do is write my books.I released my second poetry book in 2012, "Wildflowers Scattered, Estranged: Memoirs of a Small Town Girl", exploring the struggles of a young outcast girl becoming a woman in a place she feels she doesn’t belong. to be released in summer 2012. Also to be released in 2012 is the Kawilara sequel, By the Sword.Remember Love and Give Peace A Chance ~ Lennon
