Meet the Author

-I believe that those who don't read, have never found a book they enjoyed. Some day, I hope to write the book that gets those people to read. 

-If I could take only one book with me on a deserted island, it would be The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. . .or The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

-I frequently quote movies and am known to have entire conversations in quotes.

-I love the smell of books and I don't like to bend their bindings. Don't even ask me to borrow a book. (Note from pearls:  I remember having a whole conversation about this with you a few years ago. LOL)

-I have always wanted to compete in the Olympics in equestrian. Sadly I'm too much of a chicken
to jump so that eliminates 2 of the 3 disciplines.

-I was once an intern for a minor league hockey team doing stats and chauffeuring the
mascot around to appearances.

-I absolutely love bacon. I mean seriously, I could eat it at every meal.

-Horses and music make me happy.
