    • I am a young aspiring writer who can't wait to start writing books and novels. I am working on advancing my skills in the Administrative field before I begin writing books and novels; I am setting up my foundation.

      At twenty-two years old I think I have accomplished more than an average person my age. I graduated from high school with a 3.75 GPA; I always tried to challenge myself and push myself to learn as much as possible. I graduated with 32 credits above the average 25 credits. After high school I applied at the newspaper and had a wonderful opportunity to fulfill one of my dreams of working at a live newspaper. I worked part time for a year and a half and was presented an opportunity I couldn't pass up working as the Administrative Assistant/Receptionist for a general contracting company The Samuels Group, Inc.

      Now it's time to begin the next chapter in my life. Beginning to follow my heart, goals and dreams. Take some time to travel, pay off my debts, and finally begin to writing my own books. I would love to write a series of books targeting teens and young adults who need something or someone to relate to. As far as situations to look at and know that they are not the only one's who have to make hard decision when growing up and making choices to get themselves somewhere. I didn't exactly have the best upbringing and would love to share my experiences with the world.

      So, it's time to begin. <3

        • By far my favorite author is Joseph Wambaugh. I love his blunt style of writing. My favorite book by him is The Blooding. A few other authors that I like are Dan Koontz, Anne Rice, and Elizabeth Lowell. They are my inspiration.

        • I am into musicals hard core. I love the Moulin Rouge, Rent, Across the Universe, those are my favorite modern musicals, and my Old Favorites are Singing in the Rain, Bell Boy, anything will Fred Astaire or Shirly Temple.

        • I love to listen to everything, but lately I have been getting into folksy kind of music. My favorite artists include Slipknot, Prince, Scarlett Johanson, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, Amy Lee, The Wreckers, Duffy, The Cranberries, Senses Fail, a local band Poney, another local band Disease Called Man and a whole ton more but I would use up like three pages.

        • My favorite show of all time is Gilmore Girls. Other than that I love reality t.v. and House

        • Laurell K. Hamilton is my favorite comic writer. I love her Anita Blake series of comic books. They are to die for!

        • Washington Journal, Chicago Sun Times, Milwaukee Journal, City Pages in Wausau, New York Post, and not really sure which other ones.

        • My Samuel, the adoptive Parents of my Son, Chris Valitchka and Shannon Young

        • "When your work speaks for itself, don't interupt." "The reputation of a thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour." "Nothing great was ever achieved without passion."
