"Sometimes stories cry out to be told in such loud voices that you write them just to shut them up." -Stephen King As is said in my blurb, I am an aspiring Oncologist who enjoys writing as a hobby. Recently my story "Parasitic" earned a Silver Key award from the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards of 2015 and was recognized as one of the best pieces of writing submitted in Alaska. As a result of this, my story was one of four published in the local paper (earning an entire full page!) and a copy of the paper with my story on it was on display for a week at an art gallery in Anchorage. I plan on continuing in my writing for as long as it is enjoyable to me, and I hope other people can read and enjoy my work as well. I am always open to recommendations on how to make my writing better!
