Yes, I'm a real person. I grew up in south central Oklahoma with my parents, three siblings, and various animals. As I was always academically driven, I graduated high school at the top of my class, and aspired to be a marriage and family therapist (that was after I gave up the dream of being an archaeologist). While attending Oklahoma State University, I had an epiphany. I didn't want to be a counselor, I wanted to write. Of course, my greatest passion was, and still is, digging to find cool things. I transferred back home, and decided that I could teach and write, so I graduated with a degree in English.
I now teach high school English. This is worthy accomplishments, but my greatest success yet has been having and raising my five-year-old son. He might never understand it, but he helped me grow up and become the woman that I am. No matter what, he will always be my favorite hobby, job, and blessing. He makes life meaningful, and motherhood has been more rewarding than anything I have done so far.
As far as my career as an author is concerned, I have published my poetry collection, Bone House. Now I am excited about my career as a novelist because that has become my focus, and I have published the two books in my New Adult trilogy, Revelation. And I have so many new ideas that I want to share with the world!
