I was born in Kanab Utah. I’ve moved around a quite a bit in my life, but to me, the red hills of Kanab are home. You know that feeling when you drive into your hometown after a long vacation and you just kind of breathe a sigh of relief? That’s how Kanab is for me.
My love of writing has stemmed from a young age. As a kid and teenager, I wrote short stories and poetry. I’ve published a kid’s book in 2nd grade (not a big deal really, but still a fun fact!), won a writing contest in grade school and got a poem published in a National book of poetry in middle school. In high school, I was involved in a program called Upward Bound. This allowed me to take college courses at Southern Utah University during the summer (so long as I kept my grades up) and I was able to get ahead on my English degree. I currently attend Mohave Community College online and am finishing up my degree.
Currently, I write book reviews, blog posts and short stories… however, my short stories seem to be at a point where beginnings are easier to write than endings.
In addition to my love of writing (and probably the reason) is my love of reading. I can read up to 600 words a minute, and have read many books in my 24 years. My favorite series is the Harry Potter series, but there are a number of other well-worn books that I have a special place in my heart for.
The point of this blog is to review the books I read (I’ve read way more books than I have reviews for, but this is a new blog so forgive me), have a place for my short stories and sometimes just have little updates on my life.
I currently work at a place called Grand Canyon Expeditions and I love it! I am a Reservation Specialist and I write blogs for the company page. I love to be outside hiking, kayaking and exploring with my husband and dogs. I can usually also be found at home reading, playing video games and writing stories.
