About me:

Hello! Welcome to my blog! I'm Kara, an aspiring author, professional nerd, and chocolate cupcake connoisseur. I live in rural Pennsylvania 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.

I've been writing stories for as long as I can remember, and after a brief spell of wanting to pursue marine biology, I decided that writing books was the way to go for me. Needless to say, my writing needs a lot of edits and rewrites and deletions before it's going to be ready to query. So, instead of trying to rush through my project and query it before it's ready, I decided to blog.

I'm fairly new to blogging, and at first it seemed daunting. But hey, I like adventures!

I've actually been to five out of the seven continents (I'll get you eventually Aussie), and as much as I like trying new things and seeing new places--I have no intent on going to Antarctica. The Winters in PA are cold enough for me.

So, here's to hoping that you'll want to follow me on the crazy journey that is writing a novel.


  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! :)

  3. WHOAH GIRL. FIVE CONTINENTS!??! ahhh I'm so jealous!!!!!! That's so incredibly awesome. So far I've only been to like, 20 states bc I'm too young to drive and don't have any money 🙈😂

    1. Haha--don't worry, I can't drive yet either.

      My picture is a little outdated, but I am in high school now.
