Alright Anthemites,

A bunch of my followers on Bookstagram thought it would be cool if I made a Vinyl inspired playlist...so I did it! It has a lot of rad tunes. Check it out! You can listen while you read...if you can listen to music while you read. I personally can't.

Ever since I was a kid, I’ve wanted to write a novel.

I always loved telling stories (just ask my parents, teachers, co-workers and pretty much anyone who has ever met me) and writing was always my thing. Every job I’ve ever had has involved tapping keys in some way.

So, a few years back I was read... Read more of this blog post »
