Hi there! I’m Stephany and I’m a 20-something writer living in central Florida.
I have a varied number of interests but chief among them is writing and reading. I am a bookworm to my core and can’t remember a time when reading didn’t have the number-one place in my life. Along with that, I’m a writer. By day, I write SEO content for an online marketing firm and by night, I write blog posts and fiction novels.
My biggest dream is to be a successful published novelist, hence the name Stephany Writes. My mind is constantly buzzing with story ideas, though I have yet to complete a full-length novel I am proud of. One day!
I am very close to my family, most especially my mother (whom I consider to be my best friend) and my older brother. I also have a tiny dachshund who is my entire world. I am no longer on speaking terms with my father, a decision I made back in 2010, due to his narcissistic and demeaning behavior toward me. I have written about this in a variety of posts that you can find here and here.
I love cruising and I’ve been on six cruises to date. I’ve been to Mexico, Grand Cayman, Jamaica, Key West, and the Bahamas through my cruise exploits and have done a wide range of crazy adventures, such as parasailing, zip-lining, and swimming with sting rays. Cruising is my #1 travel love and I can’t wait to go on more cruises and have even crazier adventures.
On this blog, you will find a wide variety of topics, ranging from health and fitness to book reviews to personal essays to goals. I don’t have a niche for this blog… I simply write about what I need to get off my chest. Writing is a cathartic experience for me, and I am very open to talking about my struggles and heartbreaks, as well as my triumphs and happy times. I try to be as vulnerable as possible, in the hopes that someone else will realize they aren’t as alone in their struggles as they may think.
