Autobiography & Accomplishments:
While attending 2 of my 3 colleges simultaneously, I was a Radio Show Hostess/DJ for my own radio show at UW-Parkside's 101.7 WIPZ. Some male co-workers claimed, that I could supposedly "raise the dead" with most of my music.
In addition, my chapbook is currently bound at Carthage College. Meanwhile 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.
I am currently writing another short story and plan to revise, expand, re-bound, and publish my chapbook.

Originally, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns was "It's Not All Bunnies And Sunshine." It's Not All Bunnies And Sunshine was a rushed version of my chapbook. This was in order to meet the deadline and graduation requirements for the Creative Writing Minor.
At that same time, I was battling a severe health scare. 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 10 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.
**** The short stories are works in progress. Anyway, take a tour around It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns and stay tuned!
