I believe in a future where I
will be able to write full-time, a picture I already hold vividly in my
mind. It all starts with my debut young adult novel, Provex City. I love

As soon as I saw Alex's announcement for this blogfest, I knew who I wanted to highlight. I miss my friend Rane. She is a fellow young adult writer and had created a successful blog called The Lit Express last year. She is the one who got me started blogging--after discussing it for about six months. I was really nervous to jump into the blogosphere. But I finally did it, and Rane helped me get started. She was even my first follower!
Soon after my blog launched, life got it the way of Rane's blogging and writing (which I can totally relate to). She stopped posting and began revamping the site. But never finished. It's been sitting lonely and under construction for most of the year. I check it regularly with the hope of seeing a glorious relaunch. Maybe in 2013.
Thank you, Rane, for pushing me into starting my blog. I've learned a lot and met great people along the way. Life has been getting in my way recently, too, but that's just how if goes sometimes. I can't do everything, only my best at this moment in time.
