Author bio

I'm from the Midwest, and I've been writing for longer than I can remember! Bios aren't my strong point, here it goes. I am a part of the LGBT community, so a lot of my stories revolve around that- though I think it's important that everyone knows that my stories don't reflect my personal experiences. I'm out and proud, and I am so thankful for the supporting people I have surrounded myself with. I am a huge advocate for me talk health. I have a lot of mental illnesses, and I think it's important to talk about it. I am a HUGE nerd. I spent so much time reading as a child. During summer breaks, I would challenge myself to read more books than I did the summer before, and I got all the way up to 32 books. I love Harry Potter, Disney, and a lot of popular LGBT shows and media. Brooklyn 99 is one of my comfort shows, and so is Parks and Rec. I'm a huge dog lover. I have a rescue dog named Paisley. She's almost 12 years old, and she's a piebald border collie, meaning she's mostly white. And because of that, she has heterochromia (one blue eye and one brown eye) and she's deaf. Even though she's older, she's so energetic and silly and full of life. I love her more than anything else. Right now, I work full time in a job that is 100% physical labor. When I was in college (I wasn't there long) my goal was to be an English teacher. After college, my goal was to open my own restaurant. At the moment, I want to open my own bakery. Writing has always been a passion of mine, and I've always wanted to be a published author. I just don't want it to be a full time job. Partially because I burn myself out quickly, partially because my ADHD doesn't let me focus on writing for more than 20 minutes at a time, and partially because I don't want to potentially start dreading something I'm so passionate about because of deadlines or expectations. Writing is fun for me, but I don't want it to be work. That's all I can think of right now. I hope my stories are enjoyable!
