About me

Occupation Writer
Location Warrenton, Virginia, United States
Introduction I grew up in Front Royal, Virginia and have never wanted to live in another state although I love to travel! I went to George Mason University where I studied English Writing. Before becoming a teacher, I was a commercial real estate agent in Washington, D.C.. I enjoyed the fast pace of selling office space and the constant interaction with clients. But, I had always wanted to teach so that's my new career path. Besides my family, my other passion is writing. I write every morning before any of my family is awake. It's the best time of the day. I enjoy books of all genres and age groups but particularly like middle-grade to young adult books. I can't wait to share my favorite ones with each of you!
