Here’s this thing that you probably know about me if you’re reading this: I’m a writer. I am always, proudly, irrevocably a writer, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Sometimes this looks like writing devotions in the morning with coffee to submit to various magazines for a little extra money to go towards college textbooks; sometimes this looks like plugging away at my novel(s), trying doggedly to reach that 60,000 word mark, because for years and years my dream has been to be an author; sometimes this looks like scribbling words in a notebook that perhaps no one will ever see, even though it’s close to midnight and my handwriting is getting messier and my words, rawer. They’re words that I can’t not write down. Because I am meant to write. Sometimes I think, should I even try to explain to people what words mean to me? How they keep me up at night and won’t leave me alone unless I get out of bed and feverishly scribble them down? How much I savor them and long for them? But I know there are other people like me in the world–lovers of words–so here are mine, because I want to connect with you.
I plan to make a living through these things we call words. Keep scrolling down to see everything I’ve had published so far, and stay tuned to this page–there’s much more coming!
