I'm a Texan writer who's obsessed with grammar. A future lawyer. A nerd. A sister. A Christian. A rock climber. A roller skater. A singer. An actor. A not-a-dancer. A kaleidoscope of labels that are supposed to describe me.

Message from Writer

I write to move. I write to play the finely tuned instrument of the human mind. I write to cause laughter, and tears, to give worry and peace. I write so they will turn back three pages to make sure they read what they think they did. I write so they will set down my book with an awed thump, not daring to break the moment with a slam. I write so they will end the story with sadness and elation and nostalgia coursing through their veins all at once. I write to move.

I'm Not Lying!

FREE WRITING

I'm not a hero, you know. Edin is. I can't be.
What if I don't want to be?
How am I supposed to know if it's too late? You're the one who knows everything about me.
I can't hide from you. You're in my mind! Poking around, doing who-knows-what. My mind is very organized, you know. You're going to mess it all up.
I can lie to you? How?
Fine. I guess I'll just figure it out myself.
Maybe I...

Hero? Me?

FREE WRITING

Take a look at my life.
Go ahead, really.  I don't mind.
I always wanted someone to traipse through the most intimate recesses of my memories, past secrets that I've locked up with half a dozen keys, and learn it all.
Oh well.  At least it's just one person.  It's not like anyone else will ever know.
They will?  What do you mean?  I only see you.
You're writing a book?  About me?  What for?  It's not like there aren't...

Actor's Theory

FREE WRITING

I have always connected to movies, to the vibrant life before me, unfolding on screen. Even when the magic was lost to me, I took care to hide the truth from myself and dive deep into the character. Laugh with them. Cry with them.
It's not real, but that's okay.
Then I made a friend and developed a theory.
My friend was just as absorbed by the magic of a movie as I was, and adored the movie theater as...
