ABOUT
ABOUT ME

The only thing that matches the joy and satisfaction of discovering something new, is creating something new. From Liberal Arts to English Literature I have retained my love of words and research. 

An addiction that started with Crystal's Pony Tale for Sega Genesis, if a game has character customization I will play it.  

 When it comes to writing for games I pride myself on my ability to communicate - not only with my team but by interpreting and expressing ideas and emotions to players. 

An avid reader and devoted dog-mom, when you can't find me with a book in hand, you'll find me with a book in hand.

SHORT STORIES

A Heroic Disposition
A Heroic Disposition

A Heroic Disposition is inspired by the illogical fear experienced in the most mundane of circumstances. In my case, the bathroom of movie theatre.

Getting Smaller

Inspired by singing White Rabbit in the shower and contemplating while coming to terms with the need and effect of medication.

I used to fake it
I used to fake it

There's always a time in our lives that we just seem to go through the motions. Sometimes it's depression, sometimes it's anxiety, and sometimes it's because we just haven't fully explored the avenue. This is my first non-fiction piece. And it's about a time that changed my life. I suffered from a lot of anxiety as a child and was unable to focus in class. I'm glad I finally had this breakthrough and was able to discover and enjoy reading at the age I did.
