I write middle grade and young adult stories. The stories I enjoy writing most are those with just a hint of magic. But I read all genres. I fell in love with books in the third grade, after being introduced to Judy Blume. Since then, bookstores have been my safe haven. Other than writing, I'm obsessed with Pinterest and Studio Ghibli movies, both of which are a huge source of inspiration for me.
