I’ve been an avid reader and writer for as long as I can remember. I have a shiny new degree in English Literature and Criticism and History from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and as a Commonwealth Scholar in 2010. I started this blog to make it across the chasm between the end of classes and graduation and haven’t looked back. After two years of working to save up for graduate school, I attended Boston University for my MA in English and American Literature in 2013. Becoming a published author and working in the publishing industry are my long-term goals, but surviving to write another day never fails to top the list of my short-term goals.

My tastes when it comes to reading are varied and I’m afraid it can’t help but come across in my writing as well. I have a dark, sarcastic, some may say, twisted sense of humor that isn’t for everyone. In my writing I like to play with what defines reality and sanity as well as the ways in which our relationships affect how we act and how we see ourselves, particularly relationships our family and close friends.

Nightmares, Day Dreams, and Imagined Conversations began as the title I gave to my undergraduate senior thesis project, a collection of short stories including “A Mother’s Love,” “Heinde’s Sight,” “Spoiled,” and “Second Guessing.”

(Yes, that is a booster seat)

  2. Love, love, love the written word although I am not a seasoned writer I often try. I look to reading as a source of inspiration and a grounding force of who I am as an inspiring writer.
