On the eleventh day of the month of July, a child was born to the not so remote town in the center of Florida. She was small, and noisy, and she would later grow up to change the world.

Little did the girl know, but the world would be changing her as well.

"In the beginning, when God created the heavens and the earth; the earth was a formless wasteland, and darkness covered the abyss, while a mighty wind swept over the waters.

Then God said, "Let there be light," and there was light."

Doxa Vomica et Curo


As the child grew she found many wondrous things in the world. Math, science, literature, it all fascinated her. She love the patterns and consistency of the math and the science but even more so the adventure and escape she found in fiction. It wasn't long before the child acquired quite the hand for writing herself and fan wild in the worlds she created.

Whether through books, comics, mythology or folk lore, the little girl always found a different world to explore and fall in love with. And as she got older and more mature, so did her foreign lands of books, though she never lost the original love of the classics. It was in these worlds that she flourished and bloomed, creating the expansive mind she holds so dear, today.

“The best thing about dreams is that fleeting moment, when you are between asleep and awake, when you don't know the difference between reality and fantasy, when for just that one moment you feel with your entire soul that the dream is reality, and it really happened.”

Where the world leads her, the girl does not yet know. She simply follows the wind and her heart and finds herself in a new adventure everyday.

“Heroes know that things must happen when it is time for them to happen. A quest may not simply be abandoned; unicorns may go unrescued for a long time, but not forever; a happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.”
