About Me

Hello Readers!

I wanted to personally say “hi!” and tell you a little bit about myself. I’m originally from the Chicago suburbs, a town in Indiana called Valparaiso (that’s right! The town Kamlyn Paige is from!) but I’ve been moving around the country from ages 18 to 28.

Places I’ve Lived
  • Northwest Indiana (Purdue North Central)
  • Central Indiana (Purdue West Lafayette)
  • Chicago, Illinois (Columbia College Chicago)
  • Pearl Harbor, Hawaii (When I was married to a sailor)
  • Tampa, Florida (To stay with my sister)
  • I forget where, California (It only lasted a month)
  • Great Lakes, Illinois (For bootcamp and schooling)
  • Norfolk, Virginia (When I was on the USS PORTER)
  • San Antonio, Texas (To have my daughter)

And now I am happily back in my hometown Valparaiso, Indiana with my three-year-old daughter. It’s literally the best place to live! If Stars Hollow came to life and grew by 20,000 people, it would be Valparaiso!

Ain’t it quaint?

Schooling

I have a Bachelor’s degree in English from the American Military University, which took me about six years to complete with all my moves and jobs. I am currently working on my Master’s Degree in Business Administration and Marketing through Strayer University. I love school! I know…I’m weird. (Fun fact, I actually received my diploma during my last week of bootcamp.)

When I’m Not Writing

I like to…

  • Spend time with my family- my mother, father, daughter, aunt, uncle, cousins, their kids, and so on. And my certain special someone- Johnny!
  • Frequent the Dunes National Lakeshore and hiking trails (weather permitting)
  • Read (constantly!)
  • Horseback riding (not enough, but still love it)
  • Roadtrips (not so much now that I have a two-year-old, but she did great on the 18-hour drive from Texas to Indiana! Watched her favorite movie “Home” the entire time, over and over again.)
  • Catching up on favorite TV shows (Walking Dead, Supernatural, Gilmore Girls (old and new), New Girl, Modern Family, Game of Thrones.)
  • Write in my journal (makes me feel awesome if I write my accomplishments for the day down, no matter how tiny.) I’m currently working my way through a 365 day self exploration diary that’s really interesting and awesome. Learning new things about myself and setting new goals!
  • Drinking lots of coffee!

If I’m being completely honest, I am a homebody. I am in my pajamas by 7pm and in bed by 8:30 to read. I think this video below sums me up nicely.
