As a child A. grew up in the woods, a lover of nature, words, and cookies. While her mother cooked, A. would sit in a little chair and would read aloud to her mother. Oddly enough this love of words didn’t translate into writing.
In fact, teachers had a great difficulty getting her to write anything (and let’s not talk about the abysmal spelling test scores). This changed when A. was introduced to the world of Harry Potter. Filled with both a darkness and lightness, despite the controversy surrounding their release, Harry Potter ultimately drew people together.
Suddenly writing didn’t seem like such a bad idea. After all, books had helped A. through a great many things and she figured the best way to give back to the literary community was to write books herself. She started seeing writing as an interesting and fun thing and has been writing since middle school (which makes her sound far older than she actually is).
A morbid soul at her core, A.’s writings fall into the wide genre of dark speculative fiction. She has no problems venturing into the realms of horror and weird fiction, although she has a love for dark historical fiction. Fantasy has always captivated her, so no doubt dark fantasy stories will come to light as well.
When she’s not writing, A can be found exploring nature, taking photos of a myriad of things, snuggled up reading, or in the kitchen baking cookies.
