I grew up near Chicago, but my roots are pure country. My parents were born and raised in Central Kentucky, and they moved north seeking better jobs and a better life for their family to come. I was an oddball, to say the least - half-country and half-city raised, adapted to both cultures. I was also a neurotic and extremely shy child, so to say the least I wasn't the most popular kid on the block. But I found my escape and my joy in reading.
I love the classics, but my most beloved book will always be "Jane Eyre." I read it when I was twelve years old, and it changed my life. It turned me into a stronger person, inspiring me to have confidence in being who I am and having the courage to do whatever I choose to do in life.
I'm an amateur historian, a gardener, and an animal lover - elephants, in particular, are a passion of mine. I'm also a great fan of English actor Richard Armitage, and I hope to collaborate with him on a documentary project some day.
My mother was a nurse, and my father was an Army Drill Sergeant, so my loyalties run deep. If You're my friend, you'll be one for life.
I'm also a pacifist and a romantic, and I think the world is in desperate need of love right now. So if you read my work, be prepared for stories about strong women and romantic themes. And I hope to hear from you on social media. Come on over and say hello.
