Okay, so, we shall start with introductions.
I'm Mallory, as you may already know. I'm a Kansas girl currently living, writing, and reading in the great state of Texas. I'm a 25 year-old, recent graduate of Kansas State University, who loves books, television, movies...anything that can feed my brain an interesting story!
I've loved reading and writing from the time I could read and write. Love, Ruby Lavendar by Deborah Wiles was the first book I stayed up all night reading, and a self-illustrated comic book of me and my superhero Mastiff, Bailey, was the first "book" I ever wrote. As they say, the rest is history. Or, something like that.
Interesting things about me (or not so interesting. You be the judge):
I'm a huge fan of slasher/horror movies, but I get terrible nightmares if I watch too many too close together. I love my Chihuahua, Jazzy (a.k.a. Woudini), and my Bichon Frise, Fitzgerald "Gerald", but hope to cuddle a minimum of a billion other dogs in my lifetime. I studied Interior Architecture and Product Design for a year and a half in college before switching to Creative Writing. I married my best friend in the whole world when I was 20-years-old after dating for 3 years. I'm a sympathetic crier, 99% of my wardrobe is Out of Print t-shirts, and I love musicals.
