S.L. Armstrong has been writing for as long as she can remember. Art and reading have played a large part in her life since young childhood, but around fourteen, writing became her passion. Voraciously consuming every book in front of her opened up hundreds of worlds in her head, and she soon wanted to create worlds for other people as well.

Stine, and Anne Rice, among others. She has no shame in picking up the young adult novels she loved as a child, and she will talk your ear off about grammar and punctuation.

S.L. is on page 92 of 204 of Riding in Cars with Boys: Okay, this woman is a flat-out bitch. I mean, seriously. You don't tell your toddler you're kicking his dad out, that you'll both have no money and starve unless you *want* him to cry. How can this woman have been okay showing what a shitty, uncaring, selfish mother she is? I feel badly for her son.
