Hello friends and fellow writers!
My name is Natalie. I live in the Midwest with my fiancé, our two cats, and just recently turned 25!
I started writing at a young age after my mom told me that she could hardly understand the stories that came from my mouth, she handed me a pencil and paper and told me to write it down. And I’ve never stopped.
I really started getting into the writing scene when I was in middle school and wrote a bunch of fan-fiction for a variety of fandoms; I couldn’t just pick one. I actually happened to meet my best friend over a decade through writing fan-fiction. We bonded over our mutual love of writing and we still collaborate and seek out each other’s advice to this day.
As for now, I do have several novels bubbling in my brain that I do want to write at some point. Right now, I have a young adult fantasy novel, tentatively called Dragon Knight, that is my baby and my biggest project. I also still write fan-fiction and have several fan-fictions that I have been working on when I am taking a break from my bigger projects.
I write mainly young adult fiction, specifically science fiction and fantasy. Some of my biggest inspirations were The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and The Mortal Instruments. I even make it a habit to re-read The Hobbit every year around Christmas time.
When I’m not writing, I’m working part-time in retail. I like my job because it does give me a good amount of time to write; plus my co-workers are a blast to work with and make for great character inspiration.
I love reading and spending time with friends and family. I cuddle my cats pretty much every day. And my fiancé has been my biggest support when it has come to my dream of becoming a writer. I do hope to finish all the big projects and publish them someday. So, that’s pretty much it about me!
