TOP 5 // things most people don't know about me

I'm of English, Irish, and Welsh descent.
I am pretty much a European melting pot. The most recent European influence our bloodline has had is from England when my mom's side of the family came over with the Mormon church from England a few generations ago (she is a first generation Christian). My mom is also Irish and Welsh, and my dad's family is all from England and Ireland.

I still sleep with a night light.
Yes, you read that right. At 17-years-old, I still sleep with a night light (although, the reason I sleep with a night light might very well be because I can read better, but hush...). My grandpa made me and my siblings these little lamps made out of pieces of wood, and the light bulb is just bright enough to create a glow throughout my room. It's absolutely perfect for navigating around my room in the middle of the night.

I have this intense love for musicals.
Phantom of the Opera, Les Miserables, Hello Dolly... I love them all. I don't know why I like them so much, other than the fact that my grandmother loves them and we always watch them together. Most are just cheery and light-hearted, and others are really deep and heavy. I typically like the deeper ones like The Phantom of the Opera, though.

I'm training to be an editor.
I've started up my own freelance editing business (which you can find here). I'm currently about to begin the process in training and I am so excited for that! My biggest dream is to be able to help someone with their manuscript and get it polished up for publishing or agents.

I'm writing a fantasy novel currently.
Most people don't know that I love fantasy. My dad is a fantasy nerd, so his influence definitely helped me on my love for fantasy. I don't know what it is about it that makes me like it so much. I like how it's intense and innocent and magical and lovely all at the same time. My love for it definitely has carried out into my writing.
