I’m a writer who really loves “Star Trek”. I’m a geek. By day, I'm an infant teacher with twelve adorable and fun kiddos. By night, I write young adult contemporary. I would love to have a beagle someday and name him Porthos. My best friend tells me my autobiography (when I get an interesting life) will be called “Man or Beagle?” Because I can’t decide between the two if I could only have one.

I love how he begins as her teacher after she saves his life. They grow together in such a sweet way! It's not the most traditional love story, but I think that's why I love it more. :)

A close second favorite would have to be Aragorn and Arwen from "The Lord of the Rings!" A ranger and an elf, beautiful. :)(less)

I'm a little late in posting this, but I'm finally getting around to sharing my 2018 goals. I admit that I've lacked motivation in writing and in life. Depression and anxiety suck.

As much as I liked Fangirl, I expected more from this book. I'm bored and dont care for the characters. It does read like a poor fanfiction where the reader hasn't read the original story and is confused. Nope. I won't be finishing this book.

“Lainey, you may not be my biological daughter, but you are a daughter to me. I can't be your dad if you don't let me, and I understand, but I will always be waiting for you if you want me. It's not an offer I will trade or give up. I love you as if you were my child. Don't ever forget that. You can tell me anything.”
Krista McLaughlin, Breathless
