I was born in Nebraska, and when I was twelve we moved to small-town Iowa, where we’ve been living ever since. After high school I studied at the University of Iowa in Iowa City. January 2011 I studied abroad at Lancaster University in Lancaster, England, where I met lots of amazing people and learned a ton about writing. I graduated from Iowa in June 2011 with a degree in English and creative writing. I wrote feature articles for a year for the local newspaper the Daily Iowegian. Currently I am a volunteer firefighter and secretary for Creston Fire Department and staff reporter for the Creston News Advertiser. I love them all!
As you can tell, I have a passion for literature and writing, and want to share that passion through this website. If you’re interested in short stories by up-and-coming writers, or just a review for an interesting book to read, please explore this site!
P.S. I’d like to send a big shout-out to my friend Ben, without whom this website wouldn’t exist. Thanks so much for the help and making The Obsessed Reader look as awesome as it does!
