Hey there



I’m Coleen and I love to make things.

I especially like writing stories (YA & MG are my faves), drawing doodles ( I never met a Sharpie I didn’t like), and taking oodles of photos with my phone. I find inspiration in tons of places, but I get the biggest boost from my family (and okay coffee).

Some other (ridiculous) random facts:

1. I’m easily persuaded by dessert.

2. Gluten doesn’t like me all that much, but I’ve adapted, and can whip up a gluten free batch of fudgy brownies (the kind with the crackle crust) in no time. (It’s probably a little too easy for my own good.)

3. I love books. Pretty much all kinds. Even the smell of books is comforting. It’s a good (great) thing I also work in a library.

4. I think TV is awesome. Gilmore Girls is a fave, I could live in Stars Hollow.

5. Fall is my favorite season. I love autumn leaves– and fleece!

6. I’ve been known to run errands only to notice later I have toothpaste spatter on my shirt.

7. When I was eight years old, I thought it would be cool to marry Godzilla.

8. I’ve lived in the same house for the last 20 years, but before that I moved 16 times.

9. I LOVE road trips.

10. I think Instagram and Pinterest are awesome.  Without them I might’ve never discovered the “brookie”.

Feel free to say HI over at my blog or Instagram (or any of the other social media spots!). I can also be reached via my contact me page. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
