I was interviewed recently by my local newspaper! It was mainly to highlight my recent Scholastic writing award wins (two silver keys and three honorable mentions!), but the article also talked about my other writing projects, my blog, summer writing camps, and me playing the violin. Yesterday my parents surprised me with a physical copy of the paper and the article and my picture were on the front page! Crazy, right?!
If you want to check out the whole article (plus a video of me), you can click here. :)
Since the video they took included me playing the violin, I'm curious: what instruments do you play (or would like to play)? Leave a comment!

I'm on the Front Page!
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
