I read, write, edit, work out, eat, repeat. After graduating with a B.A. in English and Philosophy from Queen's University in Canada, I decided to pursue my dreams as a writer. Everyone has a goal, mine was to publish my first book in my 20s. My debut novella, Aria, is a semi-autobiographical exploration of a young woman's psyche. It is fast, drenched in emotion and bleak. Aside from writing, I weight train three times a week in hopes of one day competing in the WBFF shows. I swim, paint, organize parties and read extensively in my free time. Soon to be published is a collection of short stories titled The Small Things.
