We all have faced the struggles of living off-campus while in school and we all know the dangers. Here’s a snippet of my life living in fear of the evil plastic in my wallet.

The Perfect Proposal


What exactly the perfect proposal? Every proposal is subjective, relating to the couple and how well they know one another. Do I have a story? No, I have something better, at least to me.

Weekly Reading List #9


Hey there avid readers! I know, it’s been a while since I’ve had one of these up. But here we go! Starting my next week of reading, we have Lost & Found, Hammered and The Midnight Queen. All of which sound incredibly interesting. Just like before, Goodreads provides the synopsis for the aforementioned books.

Happy Labor Day!


Happy labor day avid readers! Hopefully you all are not only having a wonderful day but you also had a wonderful weekend. I had quite the adventure with my mother and I worked. Oh, and it was also my birthday. Happy reading!

Yellow Ducks – A Short Story


The final short story I had the pleasure of writing before my Leave of Absence from Emerson College. The story follows a marriage couple who find out they are unable to have children.

Beautiful Hangover – A Short Story


So this is another short story that I wrote or my creative writing class, again Freshman year. I was really inspired by the music video Beautiful Hangover by Big Bang. This was right when I got into Kpop, courtesy of my delightful roommates. I remember telling them I had no idea what I wanted to write about for my second short story and well joking one of them said, because this video was on, to write about this. And I did. It was a lot of fun to write this story and share it with my classmates. I’m overall very pleased with the outcome of the story. Hope you enjoy!

MONSTER OF NIGHT – A SHORT STORY


During my freshman year at college I was asked to write a short story for my Creative Writing. This was the final draft. Not the one I initially presented in the class but one that has been edited – I hope – and one I really enjoyed writing because I love subtly in writing and this is the story I experimented that with.

LIGHT IN THE DARK – A SHORT STORY


Check out one of my earlier short stories that served as the inspiration for my upcoming novel ‘Blood Hunger’, now available on the Kindle and Nook and on Pre-Order status at NiaDraginBooks.com

The novel follows them on their adventure as they leave home for the first time and discover the world around them, as well as their darker inhibitions

Weekly Reading List #8


Woo! So check out what is on my reading list. You know I really like doing these weekly segments and sharing my love of reading with you readers. My boyfriend says I love books more than him and well, he may be right. I love to read, what can I say? Anyway, let’s get down to business, you’re not here to read about my love life. Remember, these synopsis are provided by GoodReads seeing as I still have no idea what they are about yet.

Weekly Reading List #7


So to be honest, I expected to be done with the third arc of the pretty little lairs series but Pretty Little Secrets was kind of a letdown so I continued to put it down and procrastinate on actually finishing the novel. I hardly ever do that unless a novel really bores me. Just look at my Goodreads stats, I read super-fast…much to the disdain of my mother who says books are wasted on me. Nevertheless, here’s my reading list for the week. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and had a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend between reading.
