My name is Colleen. I am 30 years old and have lived in Upstate New York my whole life. I consider myself an extreme introvert with a passion for creative writing. I am the daughter of a preacher and raised in a Christian home. I also attended a conservative Christian college called Houghton. I studied education, ministry, and the Bible while I was a student there. It was ingrained in me since childhood how to think about the controversial issues of this world. Eventually, as the years past after graduation, I learned to think for myself. I now have a heart for writing fiction which stems from my evolving worldview and my faith.
