About me

Occupation Full time crazy person/aspiring author
Introduction I am currently writing a novel about a girl, a cult and the end of the world.
Interests Spontaneous travel with the family, cutthroat bargain shopping-especially all night after Thanksgiving--see you at the Walmart, people! Also: Bike rides, reading all day when it's rainy, regular trips to Disney and watching scary movies.
Favorite Movies If I want to bawl like a baby: Steel Magnolias...still, always. Recent Loves: Source Code, Inception, Battlefield Los Angeles, The Hurt Locker--can you tell that I see a lot of "guy movies"? Oldies but Goodies quoted often in my house: Ferris Bueller, Sixteen Candles, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Fifth Element, Aliens, Terminator.
Favorite Music Pretty much anything by Linkin Park-they're always on my playlist while writing. Coldplay, One Republic, Paramore, and Muse make the list pretty often too. When I'm not writing I'm listening to all kinds of Disney artists...I have two girls under the age of ten. 'Nuf said.
Favorite Books Divergent is a new favorite. The Hunger Games trilogy. Maggie Stiefvater's books. I am also a lifelong Stephen King fan-I started reading his short stories in Middle school and have read all the rest since. I gravitate towards the dark and creepy usually, but have to cop to being an avid Sweet Valley High Twins reader once upon a time.
