I figured an introduction would be interesting.
I was born on May 2, 1988, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (during my dad’s residency). Although I moved around a lot, I claim Virginia as my home. I am the oldest of six children, and my parents are still happily married. My parents currently live in Yakima, Washington.
I recently graduated from Brigham Young University -Idaho, with my B.S. in University Studies. Rexburg, Idaho is a fun place to live, if you don’t count the cold. Winters are brutal, but the summers make up the difference. Moving to Las Vegas has been quite the shock. I went from “warm” 40-50 degree weather to 90 degrees, and it’s only May! But, that’s okay, because my apartment has air conditioning, and the complex has a pool. 🙂
Before marrying Ben, my maiden name was Dana Gooss. My two year anniversary is coming up on July 29th -Ben and I were married in 2011, in the Los Angeles LDS temple. Ben and I are in Las Vegas for Ben’s internship. Ben is a Construction Management major, and he is currently interning for South West Gas. So far, Las Vegas has been lots of fun. Right now is the ideal time for me to be a writer. I have the time, and can afford to be a full time writer, which I am excited about. I am determining whether or not to take on a part time job -we shall see.
Some interesting things about me: I am left handed, and am a natural redhead. I love sushi, alfredo, gouda, spinach wraps, and anything with coconut. I’m into health foods and alternative medicine, and I do my best to reuse and recycle where I can. I am into yoga, essential oils, couponing, making my own cleaning supplies, singing, writing, and running. I am a big Jane Austen fan and own all of her books. I am currently working on building up my collection of Jane Austen movies. One of my biggest dreams is to earn enough money to buy a house outright -and buy one with a yard big enough for a large garden and chickens. I am LDS, and I love my religion. I find my faith to be a great motivator in my life. And, as I mentioned in the previous post, I plan to have my first novella published on Amazon by the end of the summer!
