A BIT ABOUT MYSELF:
I am a wife and mother to a four year-old boy–though it feels like at times my husband and I are the biggest kids in our family. I joke, but in all seriousness, my boys are my world. I work full-time as a tutor at the local university. It’s a great job; I love helping young people realize and achieve their dreams as well as giving them the tools to go forward in pursuit of them. Apparently, working with young people is a part of my life’s calling as my husband and I also lead our church’s youth group together. In addition to these roles, I write daily. I journal my prayers, write my dreams, and make up stories. Some of those stories have even turned into books! I am the self-published author of three works: Ferocity (Book one of The Ferocity Series), Muted, and Autumn Leaflets: a Collection of Poetry.

Background and Inspiration
In graduate school at Arkansas State University, I fell in love with the Transcendentalist movement. I have always been inspired by nature, so authors like Emerson, Thoreau, and Hawthorne were some of my favorites! I still tend to draw a lot of my inspiration from nature, especially in my poetry; however, I also write from my experience and often with religious undertones.
I am a member of White County Creative Writers, ShortFictionBreak, Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and Arkansas Women Bloggers. In addition, I am active with the writing community at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum, and I am a regular guest contributor to Unashamed Impact.
When I have free time, I enjoy reading, writing, blogging, painting, drawing, and singing.
