I am seventeen years old and live in Kansas. I'm going to be a senior in high school. I have two cats named Tigger and Tally. I have three best friends that mean the world to me and also LOVE to read. I love reading and taking pictures. I really love mythology books and retellings of fairytales. I like to write novels and hope to become an author. I'm crazy in love with music and am almost always singing or listening to it. I like working with others and motivating them to read.
