About Me

I am a daughter of the King of kings. I was raised a church kid and have received the gift of grace as my own. I believe salvation is by grace and not works, I believe in the Trinity, and I believe the Bible is true. I seek to honor God in all I do.

I am an introvert. My personality type is INFJ, which means I get a two-for-one-deal of feeling your emotions and mine at the same time!

I am a writer and blogger who occasionally experiments with other methods because there are so many ways to tell stories! Before I knew how to write I would act out my stories. The first story I wrote down was about a cat with the most creative name ever—Emily. I now write middle grade fantasy and contemporary stories inspired by an amazing God, my love of the outdoors, and my wonderful friends.

I am a sucker for a good middle grade fiction book. Some of my favorite books are The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster, The Mark of the Dragonfly by Jaleigh Johnson, Love, Aubrey by Suzanne LaFleur, and The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt.

My favorite comic strips are Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson and The Far Side by Gary Larson.

I also enjoy music. I love harmonies, so many of my favorite bands have two singers such as for KING & COUNTRY, They Might Be Giants, The Gray Havens, and The Oh Hellos.

“… a few of my favorite things!”

  • 🍃 NATURE. I have no words other than beautiful.
  • 🐱 CATS. I used to want to be a cat when I grew up.
  • 😂 HUMOR. I can laugh at nearly anything.
  • 🎨 ART. I am not good at it, but I still like it.
  • 🤓 LEARNING. My favorite subjects are history and languages.

Oh, and by the way, my last name rhymes with zucchini.
