About me:

Hello! Welcome to my blog!

I'm Kara, an aspiring author, professional nerd, and chocolate cupcake connoisseur. I live in a cozy house with a very lazy bearded dragon and a Shih Tzu puppy who has a bad habit of running off with my shoes. When I'm not cuddling with my pet babies, you can find me typing on my laptop, or with my nose buried inside of a book.

Some of my favorite reads include: Keeper of the Lost Cities, by Shannon Messenger, Story Thieves, by James Riley, and Renegades by Marissa Meyer.

A few of my interests (besides writing) are drawing, traveling, and baking (and sometimes burning) things.

Anyway--thanks for stopping by!

Here's to hoping you'll stick around a bit. :)


  1. Hello, Kara! Looks like you started around the same time I did. Cool!
    Wow, you’ve been to five continents? That’s awesome!
    Good luck on your writing! I look forward to seeing more of your posts!

    1. Thank you! Sorry, it took so long to reply to your comment, I don't know how I missed it.

      My profile picture was actually taken in Asia, and I hope to go back someday.

      Good luck to you as well!

    2. Um. Wait. YOUR PHOTO WAS TAKEN IN ASIA????? Where? How? That is AWESOME!!!!!!

  2. Hi, Kara! Thanks for the follow on my blog!

    You wanted to study marine biology? I looked into that this past year too--focusing on microbiology. I thought it was fascinating, but I still love writing!

    Can't wait to see you around the blogosphere!

    1. No problem, Danielle--I really enjoy reading your blog!

      Wow, cool! I was still interested in marine biology up until about two years ago. I went on a cruise, and the ship had to turn back around before we got anywhere because it went through a huge storm and got pretty beat up. Consider myself scarred for life. :/ And you can't really study ocean animals without getting in the ocean, and that's SO not happening after that. XD

      Thank you!

    2. Oh goodness! That's sounds terrifying. :( Yeah, I don't blame you for backing off.

      And I wanted to let you know that I tagged you for the Get To Know Me Tag over at my blog. <3

    3. Thank you, Danielle! I'll have to get on this! :)

  4. Hi Kara! Wow that's a lot of traveling! Blogging is so much fun, I've been doing it a little over 4 years :)

  5. Hey, Kara!
