Autobiography & Accomplishments:
I am a New Adult Horror/Thriller Short Story writer, blogger, site owner, and a former DJ/Radio Show Hostess for UW-Parkside's 101.7 WIPZ. This is along with having some of my poems and short stories bound in my own chapbook at Carthage College in 2006.
In 2012, I
hand wrote 3-4 additional short stories. In November 2013, I made Writers Cafe's front page under the category, "Writers To Watch." On May 24, 2016, I had the wonderful opportunity to interview the former bassist of White Zombie, Sean Yseult.
Writing my latest short stories have been put on hiatus. Eventually, I will revise, expand, re-bound, and publish my chapbook.

Whenever there are glitches, I will publish blogs on Blogger; Blogger is my alternate site. Then, I will re-publish those same blogs on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
What is"It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns"?
At that same time, I was battling a severe health scare. Let's just say that I out bled the hallway from The Shining and Bleach's Ichigo Kurosaki combined. It caused me to rush and compile as many of my poems and short stories as possible, in 2006.
Since I was displeased with some of my older work and because it has been 11 years, I have decided to remove and revise some of it, while expanding on newer content. I'm removing my old poems, keeping my previous short stories, and will continue adding new short stories to my chapbook, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
Anyway, take a tour around It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns and stay tuned!
