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


Follow your passion. Stay true to yourself. Never follow someone else's path unless you're in the woods and you're lost and you see a path. By all means, you should follow that.
— Ellen DeGeneres
