my writing

I wrote my first story at age six, complete with awful crayon illustrations. I haven't stopped since, and I find writing creatively as such a natural part of my life that I do it in many and varied ways. Besides my blog, which showcases quite a bit of writing and styles, here is a brief resume of my writing credentials, along with the handles for my three complete (unpublished-as-of-yet) Young Adult novels. (Note: three is by no means the final count for the number of novels I have completed; it is merely the number of novels which I feel comfortable with to try and sell.)
