I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas. I work at the North Oak Cliff branch of the Dallas Public Library as a library associate where I am in charge of the ESL computer program. I am getting my M.L.S. in School and Youth Librarianship.
M.S. candidate in Library and
B.A. English Literature with
Secondary Education Certification
I have enjoyed writing stories since I first learned to write. Most of my stories come from dreams, others from events in my own life. I have known since 8th Grade that I wanted to become a librarian. I would like to work in an elementary school. I enjoy telling stories to little kids and I especially like to hear others stories.
I have played the violin since 4th Grade, but I only play it at church these days. I am not a soloist. I collect spoons and bells from places that I have gone or that friends and family bring back to me. I have a large collection of children’s books. It sometimes feels like our house is just one big library since there are bookshelves everywhere and a lot of stacks of books around the house. I am a really big Harry Potter fan and I love the allusions that J.K. Rowling uses in the novels. I love Greek mythology and folktales also. I am single and hoping to find my prince charming, no luck yet! I was brought up loving music; in high school I played the violin in the orchestra and the Madrigal dinners, participated in the Colorguard and sang in the Spring Musicals. I love to swim, so much that I was a lifeguard for 7 years.
