To most people, I’m your stereotypical quiet, nice girl. What they don’t realize is that means I listen and think—a lot. They don’t know that I could talk for days. It’s my ultimate weakness in the face of procrastination. I can distract myself for hours with just my own mind, thinking about school, people, resentment, dating, politics, religion, sex, art, what I want to accomplish, what I’m meant to accomplish. I never feel like I have the opportunity to truly unearth all that goes on in my head. There’s interruptions, the conversation flows in a different direction, I’m scared, or there’s simply just too much to tell. I think all my thoughts, opinions, and experiences are threads in my life’s tapestry, and to pull one is to touch all the others. I can’t fully explain anything without explaining everything. I hope that through writing I’ll be able to stitch that tapestry together for others to read.
I was raised in the deep southern heat of Louisiana and Mississippi and am currently majoring in Linguistics at the University of North Texas and working on my first novel. I write speculative fiction and poetry. When I’m not writing, I enjoy rock climbing, singing, playing the piano, and reading (of course).
