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
