Growing up in the crime-ridden Bronx, I couldn't always go outside to play with friends, so I had to find indoor hobbies that could fill my time. I became fond of drawing, painting, reading, and crafting. I always had an active imagination, and writing became a natural way of expressing the stories in my head. In second grade, I won fifth place in a school-wide short story competition. It was more of an assignment than a passion back then, but I began to realize my love of storytelling when I wrote my first novel in middle school, a handwritten manuscript that my friends were obsessed with reading. It was a passion that was forgotten when I was urged by my family to pursue nursing as a "real" career. I was not following my true calling, although I graduated college with honors. I had to acknowledge the differences between what my family wanted for me and what I wanted for myself, so I pursued my art and began writing again. I currently live in New Jersey, am still writing, and enjoy spending time with close family.
