She recently won the Top Ten Handmaid’s Challenge on Wattpad where hers was chosen by Margaret Atwood herself. Along with her husband and black lab, she spends a lot of time with her skeletons — don’t worry, they’re only Halloween props.

I also use pretty much everybody I’ve ever known to composite characters. I’ve been married twice, have 2 kids, 3 dogs, and very little patience left.
