I am 28 years old and currently live in Birmingham, Alabama. I recently finished my Masters in Social Work and am moving to Phoenix, Arizona to complete my PhD. I have been writing since 5th grade and attended my first writer's conference for elementary and middle school children. Most of my time was spent writing poetry and short stories but I always wanted to write a novel. But I never had the time. Then I was fired from a job I hated and a few weeks later my father surprised me with a laptop. I believe that was the universe telling me I no longer had an excuse to put off my dream. Writing will always be a major part of my life and I hope to keep publishing novels until my fingers are too brittle to move. I hope you enjoy my work and please feel free to give feedback. The worst thing I can do as a writer is remain stagnant in my skills. Your advice and criticism can help me continue to develop and continue telling stories you want to hear.
