I'm an author of paranormal thriller novels that have a coming-of-age bent. I'm a fiercely loyal friend and an intense lover. I like movies that make me think, music that makes me cry, and people that make me laugh. I have an open mind, because that's how dreams get in. I believe life is too short to live feeling bored or stressed. I love independence, Miyazaki and rainy days; I hate mornings, dull music and potheads. The most difficult word for me to say is "goodbye"; but "hello" comes pretty close. I daydream a lot but have good credit; I nightdream even more but have cable. And I think the saddest stories can be the most beautiful.
