About The Author

All you need to know about me:

I am #3 out of 6 siblings. Yes, yes, I know…”That’s a lot of kids!”

The age range goes a little something like this: Kate, Josh, ME, Drew, Hutch, and Abigail. All of the people in my life have substituted names for anonymity and because it’s fun.  (My mom=Meryl, Dad=Atticus, Boyfriend=Matt)

I have two puppies. His name is Chesty. He is named after Lt. General Lewis Burwell “Chesty” Puller. If you don’t know who he is…look him up. My other puppy’s name is Chevelle, Chevy for short. [[Matt picked that name, not me]]

[[Recent update: Chevelle got ran over by a car. Devastation]]


If you do know who he is then you must have guessed that I have some kind of tie with the United States Marine Corps. You’d be right. My grandfather, father, brother, cousin(s), and boyfriend are in the Corps. No that doesn’t make me a Marine, but I’m still pretty damn proud of them.

I am Catholic. (But I curse like a sailor)


Music, besides writing, is my life. My tastes range anywhere from Hard Rock to Easy Listening to Country. Just catch me in the right mood. I never have to be in a “right mood” for Rock, however.

I know it’s cliché but I prefer texts to phone calls…and I HATE when people leave voicemails.

I am the full time Chief Legal Secretary at my Dad’s law firm. Criminal defense-not prosecution. I never knew, until I agreed to help him out when one of his employee’s got in a car accident and I had to fill in, that I had an affinity for the law. Who knew?

To date I have four wonderful tattoos and I am a big advocate of their beauty. If they are done right and for the right reasons I think they are great. It’s an addiction, an expensive one at that.

Speaking of addiction, I have a very addictive personality. Not proud to say, but I do smoke. My choice: Marlboro Skylines. Haven’t heard of them? Not surprised. Not a lot of people have.


Batman is way better than Superman.


Confession: I will occasionally read my horoscope, until they are freaky dead on then I’ll give it a hiatus for a while. If you are wondering…I’m a Scorpio.


I have weird little OCD’s.  Some of them are:

Hygiene: I have to wash my hands any time I will touch my face. I have to wash my face EVERY NIGHT without fail. ( I had a bad breakout my senior year of high school ad have never been the same). My OCD extends to Matt as well. I don’t think he’s ever washed his hands as much as he has since he met me in his life.

Car: My car must ALWAYS be locked if I am not in it, even if I am standing a couple feet away. ( I had some sketch break into a rental car I was using. This is literally what they stole: My pain medicine I was prescribed from the accident I was just in, hence the rental car, and a handful of change.)

House: The house must always be locked. Period. No exceptions. I have a phobia about people breaking in.

That list can go on and on.

Phobias: Someone breaking into my home and killing me, getting into a car crash (Not that unreasonable seeing as I’ve been in 5), clowns, roaches, fleas, snakes, sharks, and acne.


My best traits as I see them: Straightforward, Honest, Loyal, Patriotic, Humorous, Empathetic, Caring, Open Minded, Respectful, Opinionated, Stubborn, Intelligent, Dutiful, Punctual, Hard Working, and Loving.

My worst traits as I see them: Gullible, Naïve, Sensitive, Procrastinator, Opinionated, Stubborn, Insecure, Quick Temper, Over Thinker, and Worrier.

So this page is all about me…as you can see. If you actually took the time to read all of that, God bless you. If you enjoy my writing, and even if you don’t, make sure you let me know.

  4. Holy smokes that’s a lot of info! I feel like I really know you now! 🙂

  5. I just saw you read the post. And me the HERO should say that I never saw a criminal defense attorney with tattoos. Good you stumbled and I stumbled upon your blog because I´ll probably need a defense attorney soon….

    I see that your come from a family of military people, so you probably understand better than any other people out there what I said in the post.

    Thanks for reading.
    P:S. I have two friends in the Marines, so tell your brothers that the Spaniards do fight, my friends are always giving me grief about it.
    Stay Frosty and read ya

  6. One of the best “about” pages I have run across.


  7. Love the cartoon, love the details and wit. I imagine between the tattoos and it being your dad’s firm, you rule that roost. The hand washing sounds like a bummer, my skin would peel off and move elsewhere. Still, if sanity is on the line, wash away. Personally I can do without bugs, sharks, breakins, breakouts and a whole heap of other useless stuff, too. I’ll look forward to more posts. Cheers, Brenda
