I am a busy artist, mom, student, and teacher. I'm an adjunct instructor in painting and drawing at a small liberal arts college, I'm working on an MFA degree at the same time, and I occasionally manage to vacuum my living room. I'm married to my college sweetheart, Ryan and we have two small daughters. We live in a tiny house we bought and fixed up. We also share it with two standard poodles and an unreasonable amount of art supplies. Besides drawing and painting, I also love all kinds of creative and artsy pursuits like knitting, baking, photography, and calligraphy. I read fantasy, mystery, classics, and all sorts of things in between.
I started reading Jane Austen when I was 11, and discovered fanfiction when I was in late high school or college. I started to write stories myself because all my friends do and it looked like fun. I swing back and forth between Emma and MP as my favorite novels. I adore Emma but I'm fascinated by MP – and it's easier to write fanfic for MP.
