I'm a sucker for a good love story, especially if it's a romantic comedy or if it has a few supernatural twists. My favorite types of books often include vampires, angels, and other supernatural creatures (Think Lauren Kate and Stephanie Meyer), but I'm also a huge fan of chick-lit (Think Sophie Kinsella and Helen Fielding).
Currently, I live in Simpsonville, SC with my husband and twin boys (Thing 1 and Thing 2). I consider myself a Midwest girl stuck in the South, but I enjoy the warm sunny weather and the overabundance of sweet tea.
