I am a published poet and author, published with the publishing group, Creative Talents Unleashed, with one published poetry book out. My poetry has been published in several magazines, including, Section 8 Magazine and an anthology. I also write fiction and I'm finished with my first fiction book. It is a science fiction post-apocalyptic novella titled, "The Last Refuge". It will be out Winter 2015. I am also working on a second poetry book, this one with an artist friend who is contributing his artwork. It is titled, "One Artist, One Poet", and will be out Spring 2015. Other than all of that, I am currently a student at the University of Oregon, pursuing my Bachelor's of Arts in English Literature. I am a straight A student with a 3.75 GPA. I hope to get into the MFA Creative Writing Poetry Focus program at the University of Oregon after I receive my Bachelor's degree. If I get into the MFA program and complete it, I hope to become a college creative writing poetry professor and also become the owner of my own poetry magazine. As far as reading poetry goes, I am pretty picky. I enjoy the works of Edgar Allan Poe, Sylvia Plath, Robert Frost, Virginia Woolf, and W.B. Yeats. As far as fiction goes, my three favorite authors are Laurell K. Hamilton, Anne Rice, and J.K. Rowling. I don't read much non-fiction, but I enjoy reading about history, politics, and sociology.
