Fun Facts you didn't know you wanted to know.

I feel like it's a bit vain to assume you want to know more about me... but I'm going to go ahead and do some assuming. I mean, you DID click on this page. You MUST want to know SOMETHING... right?

If you're looking for my author bio, you'll find that on the homepage... but if you're looking for some random facts, you're in the right place!

Let's jump in then, shall we?

  • I have a degree in family studies and a certification as a PREP instructor.

  • Before becoming a family life major, I was also a dance major and a humanities major. I also almost became a finance major, a music, dance, theatre major... and a French minor. I pretty much changed my major up until the minute BYU allowed me.

  • I am very indecisive. See above.

  • I don't like cake but I love ice cream. And let's be honest, I'll still eat the cake if it's in front of me.

  • I am the 2nd of 6 children.

  • I love love stories and belive that all books need one.

  • I have driven cross-country multiple times.

  • I danced in the London New Year's Day parade. It was POURING rain.

  • I am a photographer (or was, before writing became more time-consuming.)

  • I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

  • I looooove pasta. It's an unhealthy obsession I have no intention of curbing.

  • I hate conflict.

  • I hate turning left into traffic.

  • I never wanted to be a writer growing up. But I was a voracious reader.

  • I used to be terrified of being abducted (as in kidnapped) but only just learned that my family always believed I was terrified of being abducted by aliens. 

  • I spend my weekends exploring the mountains with my husband or (more often) playing games with our families.

  • My husband and I were married in 2014 and have two little girls a little boy.

  • I'm a night owl, but I want to be an early bird.

  • I really like cheese. It's kinda weird.

  • HGTV is probably my favorite channel. 

  • AND. I'm very impressed if you made it this far! Thanks for taking a moment (or, like, 12) to get to know me!
