I have three cats (Gerald, Hoggle, and Jareth) and a yellow lab named Hilton. I am an avid reader and love Stephen King, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games Trilogy, and The Lord of the Rings. I am also a huge Star Wars fan! If I am not reading, then I am either going on a road trip or am playing video games.
