She is originally from Michigan and has lived in Portugal, South Dakota, and currently resides in southwestern Ohio where you can find her reading and writing when she’s not catching up on her favorite shows (she's addicted to American Dad to the point where she quotes episodes on a daily basis and also loves Girl Meets World). She's a big Detroit Lions fan and even has a team gnome she inherited from her dad. She received her master’s degree from the University of Michigan-Flint.
