My name is Stephanie Claire, but most people just call me Steph. I’m 21 years old and I’m hoping to publish a young adult fiction novel soon. Since high school, I’ve been inspired by YA novels about tough topics such as mental illness, and my wish is to inspire readers of my novel in the same way.

I don’t think of myself as just a writer or reader, though: I love fashion and makeup, along with a lot of other ‘girly’ things. Both the ‘beauty’ and ‘brains’ parts of me can’t be separated, even on a targeted blog. Besides, who says you can’t look nice while reading?
