Welcome to my site! I’m a seventeen-year-old aspiring author. I have been writing for most of my life— the short stories I wrote when I was younger influenced my becoming a novelist today. I can’t trace the exact moment where I knew I wanted to become an author; I think it was a very gradual realization, but I know now that publication is one of my goals.
I got the idea for my first novel when I was in eighth grade, and that summer (in 2014), I started writing it. I finished it and decided my draft was ready for querying around February of 2015, and now, over a year later, I am working on my fourth project. Through my experiences, I have learned so much about the literary world as well as about myself. It’s been an adventure, but it’s far from over, and I’m beyond excited to see where this path will lead me.
I live in Massachusetts with my family, beloved dog, and constantly-meowing cat. When I’m not writing, I can often be found playing many instruments, memorizing maps, dancing, watching hockey, and trying new kinds of tea.
