As a stay at home mom, she gave up her job and her outside life to raise her boys and be a good wife. Her family became her only focus.

I am a fiction and poetry writer from Indiana. My first book, Celia, is now available through Rainstorm Press. I am a full time graduate student at Indiana University South Bend in English Creative Writing and I received my BA in English-Creative Writing from there, as well. Currently, I am the webmistress for the IU-South Bend Creative Writing Club that is working toward establishing a local writing community. I collect dragons and am currently obsessed with Daleks and Grumpy Cat.
