I am a coffee lover, animal lover, and book reader extraordinaire. Writing is my passion; I want to be the next great American novelist, or memoirist. I am recovering from anorexia and engaging in daily battles with managing mental illness and other physical health problems, primarily bipolar I and rheumatoid arthritis. I believe in the power of healing through writing and want to share my story so others know they are not alone. Please comment, ask questions, like, and enjoy reading.
