I've always been really honest about the writing industry and my experiences, and I know there are things one isn't supposed to say but I'm going to lay them out here. I didn't set out to be a published author and I didn't grow up wanting to be a writer. Not that I wasn't thrilled and so thankful, but it wasn't something that would've killed me had it not happened, and it was never a huge goal. I didn't dream of it as a child. In fact, I wanted to be a skeleton. I'm relatively sure I confused what I wanted to be when I grew up with what I wanted to be for Halloween, but that's another story. Then I decided I wanted to move to Africa and work with mountain gorillas and elephants. At different points, I wanted to be a rock star, the first female NFL football coach, a spy and then when I started college, my first major was pre-med. I subsequently changed my major seven times and graduated with a degree that I don't use in any of my current professions. To this day, I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up, and I certainly haven't grown up.
Life is entirely too short to commit to any one thing that becomes the thing that defines you. I am many things and I want to become many more. I want to be challenged and I want to try new things. Time is never our side, so I intend to fit as many things as I possibly can into this life, and I hope each and every person reading this does the same.
Thank you all for reading and supporting my books. The last five years have been a truly amazing experience and I am so grateful for anyone who took the time to read my crazy stories.
