1. For as long as I can remember, I have been a writing, illustrating, sculpting, crafting, making, painting, cartooning artist.
2. I daydream about being an accountant.
3. I have a degree in Art from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, with concentrations in Procrastination, Angst and Second-Guessing Myself. And yes, it has been just as lucrative as it sounds.
4. My house can be a wreck but my books will still be in perfect order. Books books books I love books.
5. My favorite quote:
“Destiny dressed you this morning, my friend,
and now Fear is trying to pull down your pants.”
6. If I could only eat 3 foods for the rest of my life, I would choose coffee, chocolate and maybe chicken. Because I probably need some protein in there somewhere.

“‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord,
‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.'”
11. I have a writer sister who writes Young Adult Sci-Fi books and a screenwriter cousin who created a Sci-Fi television show for the CW. God gave our family an extra dose of weirdo creativity but didn’t add even a sprinkle of athleticism.
