Woohoo! I’m finally doing a PitchWars Bio! What is PitchWars, you might ask? Check here for details! Special thanks go out to @BrendaDrake for putting on such a kick-ass competition/writing community-building experience!
Here are some things you might not know.
In terms of writing:
–I wrote my first short story at 15 and have loved writing fiction ever since.
–I majored in English and had an emphasis in creative writing.
–This is my first PitchWars and am loving the h-e-double hockey sticks out of it! (I don’t have an aversion to saying hell, by the way, I just picked up that phrase in high school and it’s never really left my language arsenal because I think it’s amusing!)
–The novel I am pitching, Silence Worth Breaking, is my sixth completed manuscript.
–I’m currently working on my next project while I wait to see if I get selected by one of the PitchWars mentors!
–I’ve lived in three states and visited eight countries.
–I won school book reading contests in second through fourth grades, and was crushed when I didn’t win in fifth grade.
–I went parasailing once. It was awesome!
–I have to suck in air to whistle; I’ve never been able to get the hang of real whistling.
–And finally, if you don’t know that Chuck is the greatest TV show in the history of ever…well, it is, and now you know.
