I am from Nashville, TN but currently reside in Atlanta, GA. I was raised by a mother who loves to read who raised two girls that love to read. My mom works for a book distrubution company so we never bought our books at full price. I remember my sister and I sitting on the floor in books stores, writing down ISBN numbers and handing our mom long list of books. She would look down at our list and then look up at us like we were crazy. Employee discount or not, I guess at times we would go a little overboard with our lists. It was frustrating walking into a bookstore and not being able to walk out with the books we wanted. Instead we would have to wait until our mom went back to work, order the books we want and wait until they arrived and brings them home. If our mom forgets and leaves our books at work, we would act like it was the end of the world. My favorite genres are romance and psychological thrillers. This year I have decided to take that leap and become a writer. I’m looking forward to writing in my favorite sub-genres of contemporary romance, new adult, and romantic suspense. I am gearing up to for this years Nation Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). I am hoping by the end of November I will have a completed first draft of my first novel.
