Born and raised in Texas, I developed a love of reading as a child in a home surrounded by books . I can’t look at a book without feeling a rush of nostalgia. It’s then probably no surprise that I now teach high school literature. It’s a big dream of mine to help students learn to love reading. In my free time, I love travelling, baking, visiting local coffee shops, and spending time with family and friends. I recently became engaged and am now busily planning my (what else?!) book-themed wedding.
