I am a 22-year old aspiring fiction writer, from the rainy city
of Roses known as Portland, Oregon. For as long as I can remember, I have loved reading. I would always feel a searing joy
whenever I got a new book, and another chance to go on an adventure through the eyes of a talented writer. It wasn't until I
was 14-years old that I thought about writing myself. At that time, I read Sister, Sister by Eric Jerome Dickey,
and the vitality of those characters was so amazing to me. I knew in that instant, what I wanted to do. And it has been a
fierce desire ever since that day.
Even though the journey to making my dream come true is not an
easy one by any means, I am looking forward to every step of getting there. To date, I have countless poems and works in various
stages of progress. My novel, Four Letter Word is currently being edited.
I have a tremendous respect
for writers. Not even because I aspire to become a great one, but for the creativity that they have. The ability to bring
words to life on paper is a gift that I have been fortunate enough to loosely hold...and it is a gift that I will treasure
and work dilligently to make sure I can keep.
