Why I Write

I’ve been telling stories since kindergarten. By third grade, I wrote my first book. I majored in Journalism at Miami University. Flash-forward to today and I have self-published my first of (hopefully) many books.

Stories are what make our lives. For me, what began as a cathartic, creative outlet of writing a memoir, turned into the making of my first self-published novel, Dare To Move.

My first love was fitness; the strength I’ve gained in powerlifting, bodybuilding and coaching has empowered me to actually get my stories out there.

My goal? Tell stories that inspire others to believe in themselves.

My other goal? Demonstrate what vulnerability looks like.

My writing secret is respecting and listening to my inner, unpredictable writer’s voice that comes into my head when it wants and leaves whenever. Sometimes I write walking down the sidewalk, sometimes I voice record my thoughts on the road and other times I sit down with a good playlist and candles, disappearing into a writer’s favorite oblivion. I invite you to learn more about me by way of my blog where you’ll find snippets about writing, chapters from my books and rambles about life.
