About Shafter

I've grown up in a family of five other writers, which made for an interesting childhood filled with lots of good books and my parents often fighting over the placement of commas.
I graduated high school a few years ago and shunned college in favor of becoming an editor, freelancer, and writing teacher. Take that, formal education! *Ahem* And... that is all I have to say.


Writing, reading, taking long walks, playing violin, listening to music, humming constantly to the annoyance of everyone around me...


Editor, writing teacher, actress, musician


I have hated words and I have loved them, and I hope I have made them right.
— Markus Zusak, The Book Thief
