I'm a budding writer wishing to eventually publish, and I'm working on several rough drafts at a time. My audience is the young adult group.

Background Information

Immersing yourself into another character's world can be entertaining once you try it, but it's also spiritually rewarding.  To be a writer involves one's understanding of people and their motivations; to be interpretive of life's events, to look beyond what things seem to be.  I like to believe that every human being on this planet can be understood and loved, if only one were to look at her history.  I hope to demonstrate even a little bit of this attitude in my writing--with a character so lifelike he might as well exist.  The greatest wish of the human heart is to be understood . . . and I've learned, as a broad reader myself, that readers appreciate having a special character they can identify with, feel for, and imagine as real.

As mentioned, I'm not published, nor have I completed a manuscript.  I guess what I'm trying to do with my drafts is tell a story (or at least a few) about how people develop emotionally and spiritually with the events that happen to them.  When one is undergoing personal growth, relationships bud as well.  It can be a fascinating but strange process . . . a process I've seen happen in my own life.  I know you might be thinking, "Oh, she's still in her teens."  But hey, I'm growing and learning.  I notice the things you adults point out.  And life can make you wonder.  So it's easy to keep your eyes open and discover something new.

I want, hope, that I am a caring writer, reaching out to people like me. All the same, I have but one selfish motive: in each of the characters I create there is a little piece of myself inside.  If one were to pull out the characters and the specific events from my stories, he would end up with my life.

I'm still young, and I haven't much knowledge of the world yet.  But I'm learning.  If my plan comes through, please look for my name in the future.  I don't simply want to write a story; I want to write a good one--one that inspires.  I owe it to the young adults like me.

Birth Place
Chilliwack,  Canada

I pass my work around to a few of my friends, and that's pretty much all that I do. No contests, no clubs. Just sharing my "imaginary friends" and their lives with anyone willing to read about them!

Additional Information

I'd loved to read since being a student of the Accelerated Reading program in the fifth grade. And from that came my passion for writing. Four years later, I'd decided that I wanted to become a serious writer. Now being in the eleventh grade, I can't say how well I will accomplish that vision--only that I'm willing to try it out, see how it unfolds!
