A Star to Dyllis features an "Observer" tasked with fixing an anomaly in our world. An Observer is a being that records all ongoing events in all the universes from a distance for universal archives. The anomaly this Observer is trying to fix will tear the fabric of the universes apart if left alone. The anomaly seems to surround a young girl named Dyllis Diarmaid who seems to be the very definition of perfect. She even lives in a town called Perfect. She's admired by her peers and praised by her teachers. There's a deeper truth to her than meets the eyes, however. A truth that Dyllis herself doesn't seem to be willing to explore. The story is told through the viewpoint of multiple characters including the Observer, a naïve policeman, and a former delinquent. Each character has their own opinions regarding both Dyllis and their own situations. They all work together to solve the anomaly in an out-of-body adventure that makes them question their own identities.
I found myself stepping into parenting shoes for my younger brother at a young age because my parents worked long hours. To this very day, he still comes to me to ask for permission, advice and help instead of my parents. This has actually influenced most of my life decisions. Before every choice I make, I consider how it'll affect my younger sibling. Needless to say, it's a bit irritating when my younger sibling doesn't show even a drop of appreciation. I'm sure a lot of people understand this feeling.
I'm not a very athletic person. My mom once forced me to join golfing in high school. I went to an old girl's high school, so our team was very small, because of that, I was placed on the varsity team. Let me tell you this. I sucked. I sucked so bad that whenever we would have matches, I would be allowed to sit out after hitting the ball 30 times without getting it into the hole. Rinse and repeat about fifteen times. Terrible, terrible times. I can't stand to look at a golf club. Despite this fact and my unathleticism, I do enjoy running. It gives me time to collect my thoughts and think of new story ideas.
I received my Bachelor's Degree at Kent State University, where I studied biology. Despite my major, my favorite class was creative writing.
