For years, I have aspired to become a self-published novelist and an independent filmmaker. I want the world to see my ideas and creations exactly as I envision them in both written and motion picture form, and it is through these mediums that I can do that the best. My creative pieces would leave behind my influence for others to be inspired and motivated to create something beautiful, and show the world that my mind can not only read books and watch films, but make them as well!

My plan to do this would involve writing my first manuscript for my book, then taking it to a full service self-publishing company to print, distribute, and help market my book; I happen to have some experience in marketing, so getting exposure for my book will not be completely out of reach for me. Once my first or second book is published and becomes successful, I will then team up with an independent film studio to help me produce a movie based on my own book!

It has always been my dream to write my own books and direct my own movies out of them. I am passionate about words and the moving picture, because I take deep interest in the natural, the supernatural, and the human condition; this is exactly what I want to show in my work. In all honesty, I am an artist who wants to be recognized for what she wants to share and express to the world.
