Hello! I'm a writer born and raised in Southern California and haven't really traveled as much as I'd like to. Most of my traveling has been with family to the Philippines and Hawaii and New York when I was little, and more recently to go to writer's conferences in Denver and Washington, D.C. I'd like to travel more, though.
I received my M.F.A. in Fiction in June 2012 and teach English composition and creative writing. I love to read and write short stories and watch movies. I love lots of types of music and almost all types of food. I was married in March 2012 as well. I also enjoy fashion and have a style blog ((website hidden)) and Etsy shop ((website hidden)). I like to sing, play the ukulele, and listen to records.
