When I was small, and by small I mean young, I picked up a pen - perhaps it was even a crayon. With this I realized my potential to create. Until I learned to read, my main ambition was to be an artist. I would paint and color and scribble the world, to show those who existed reality through my eyes. Once letters came into the picture, I soon developed a love of symbols which created sounds to be added to my pictures, and my new desire was to be a cartoonist. I would create pictures which had words and told a story without having to use as many words and it would be grand! Then I learned vocabulary, and grammar, and I came upon my arch nemesis: spelling. Evil, evil spelling. However, where it stood in my way, I was determined to leap above it in my own way and write the world with the occasional splash of doodles to accentuate my point!

Of course as time went on, my writing and stories evolved. Though it wasn't until deep into high school that I discovered my genre, which is fantasy and science fiction, though the latter I'm only just beginning to explore. I started my first novel in high school and even completed it, self published it, and it is now sitting on the shelf of a local book store. I'm half way into its sequel as I write this post and am half way into a few other novels. This is the only criteria I have, the only credentials, rather that I hold. Of course I have taken every creative writing class available in Bellingham, my home town which I currently reside in, but no degrees or anything exciting of the sort.

I am a student of life. I studied the subject abroad for four years, and now I continue my studies of existence in my home town of  Bellingham in Washington state. Over the years I have acquired a degree in Astrology and I have my Master Herbalist and Nutritional Consultant certification, which eventually I will expand into a PhD in Holistic healing. Other than learning all I can, I write. My main function in life is to put pen to paper and tell stories.
