Writer, Reader, Creator without the time to do it all
I am a twenty-nine year old bank teller, but what I really want to do is write! I've loved reading since before I can remember and I've really loved writing since middle school. My dream is to write full time. However, I'm a recovering perfectionist with a tendency to believe that my work is inadequate. I live in Beaumont, TX, but I was born in Kansas, grew up in Northwest Arkansas, and spent one year in Santa Maria, CA. I have only been in Beaumont since January of '08. I'm also a very musical person and I enjoy dark stories with realistic endings, not necessarily happy ones. For more, please read this blog! Thanks!
Hey guys! Just wanted to let everyone know that there’s a major sale going on right now, and “Doubt The Stars” is in it! If you’ve been thinking about grabbing my first book on ebook, you can get it for the next week for only 99¢!

So, I’ve known about this for a minute, but I’ve been having trouble processing it. Here’s the deal: one of my short stories, “Purple Shoes”, has been accepted into an anthology.
Yeah, like a real, honest-to-god person, looked at my little story and said: “Yes, this is good, we want this.”
Yeah, the anthology is on pre-order here, and the book goes live in September. I’m still in a little bit of shock, honestly. Here, let me give you guys an accurate representation of me after I read the acceptance email:
So, yeah, check it out! It’s a cute little story and I’ve already read a few of the others and they’re pretty good too 🙂 Okay, I’m gonna go back to processing my shock now.
As you can probably see, I did a lot of my work on the weekends this month. A million blessings from whatever deity happens to be listening on poor Imaginary Boyfriend for putting up with me. Seriously. My weekdays have been taken up by so many things lately, it’s made it so difficult to get anything done. Alright, let’s break it down.

Fog’s Cute Animal Of The Month
The cute animal of the month is…
The blue dragon nudibranch! Species name Glaucus atlanticus, aliases include the sea swallow, blue angel, blue glaucus, blue dragon, blue sea slug and blue ocean slug. They’re only about three centimeters long and they have the coolest camouflage! They float on the surface of the water (upside down, hardcore parkour! ;P) so one side is blue to match the color of the ocean from above, and the other side is silver to blend in from underneath!
I gotta be honest though, these little suckers are dangerousaf, while also being cute.
Their natural food source is the Portuguese man o’ war, okay? These suckers do not play around!And the reason they’re so dangerous (and you do NOT want to pick one up, okay, just don’t) is that as they are eating the man o’ war, they store the venomous bits in their tendrils, and then concentrate that shit, so it’s even worse! Seriously, these guys are so bad ass, I actually can’t even…
Update 2.25.18– I’ve updated the list! And I apologize if anyone was having trouble commenting earlier 😦 I think I’ve fixed the problem, but if you still have issues, you can drop me a message on my Facebook page with your info and I will get you added as quickly as possible!
