About Me

My writing career began the day I found out I won 6th place in the Culture Arts contest sponsored by the PTA in the fourth grade. After that I continued to write short stories for myself. In fifth grade, I was one of ten chosen winners in a DARE essay contest. I received metal along with other promotional gear. I won 6th place at UIL in the Ready Writing category when I was in the 8th grade. In high school, I continued to write but didn't really enter in any contests or anything. I mostly wrote short stories for my friends, upon their request, and myself. In 2008, I completed the Basics of Writing course provided by Long Ridge Writers Group.

As of right now, I have written over 30 short stories and 2 poems. Two of my short stories have won small website sponsored writing contests. Several short stories and poem has appeared in print and online magazines/anthologies.

I currently live in Collinsville, Oklahoma surrounded by gremlins.
