I'm an avid reader of books and comics- my favorite genres are fantasy, historical fiction, psychological thrillers. I live for true crime, lore, psychology podcasts, and have even contributed to a few. I also enjoy creative writing and one of my bucket list items is to write a novel. My husband and I have two rambunctious pups- a husky and a beagle that fill our weekends with their shenanigans.
