I believe in making everyday as enjoyable as possible on this earth.
Books bring me that joy, both writing and reading them. I am currently a student. Working towards a Masters of the Arts in Teaching. (Integrated Language Arts)

Fun Facts about Me...

*I was adopted at birth by two wonderful parents who hate to read... weird right?

*"The Hobbit" is my favorite novel of all time

*If I could have any pet, it would be a Siberian Husky named “Spirit”

*When I was a little kid, I used to leave my window open in case a vampire wanted drop in for a bite and make me a vampire also (Not the "Twilight" kind)

*I have four wonderful/impossibly annoying, younger siblings and I have nicknamed

What made you want to be a writer?
JET: This is a good question and I’m not sure it was ever a conscious decision. I think storytelling is a base part of my makeup and words became my instrument of choice. It could have just as easily translated into any other artistic outlet, however, I’m much more comfortable with words as opposed to an instrument or a canvas and I seem to have more of a natur...

“If you don't make life fun, then that is no life at all.”
J.p. McNeill

“Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, in twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves
And harps of gold; where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

The pines were roaring on the height,
The wind was moaning in the night.
The fire was red, it flaming spread;
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells were ringing in the dale
And men looked up with faces pale;
The dragon's ire more fierce than fire
Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountain smoked beneath the moon;
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled their hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

Far over the misty mountains grim
To dungeons deep and caverns dim
We must away, ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit
