Alright, so. All about me.
My name is Cheyenne Trumbo, though I would presume you know that if you’ve made it this far, so we’ll skip on over that.
I am twenty-one years old. I know many writers say that they’ve been writing and have written for as long as they can remember, but I honestly and truly mean it. I don’t recall a time when I didn’t have a story burning in the back of my mind. I asked my mother once when she recalled me beginning. She couldn’t give me an age. By my estimates and speaking with my mother, I began around the ages of nine and eleven. Despite that time, I have only finished one work that wasn’t written primarily for school. That is the horrendous first draft of The Forgotten.
After a horrible experience when I was younger, I don’t save everything to one computer. I don’t even really trust the “Cloud”. I used to use a floppy-disk (hah! Can’t even find those anymore), but now I have multiple thumb drives of varying sizes, mostly 4 and 8 gig, but I think I have a 16 lying around somewhere as well. Why so many? Well, for the same reason I carry a dozen pens in my bag. I lose things. A lot. And often. Also, I sometimes remember to email myself the updated versions. That’s how I found a WIP- Unbound Chains. Thank god, I did not want to start over again.
So. I have two cats, two rats, one fiance, and a crappy job that I complain about, but probably won’t quit until I can sustain myself writing alone.
I can be a little random, but I try to keep this focused on writing and editing.
I write, because if I didn’t, the voices in my head would drive me up the wall. Really.
I am a nerd. I LOVE Lord of the Rings and Doctor Who. I play Dungeons and Dragons. And Pathfinder (a spin off.) I love everything InvaderZIM, especially GIR. I play video games. (The Assassin’s Creed games and Mass Effect Trilogy are personal favorites. But I can’t forget the Neverwinter Night’s games, though I never finished 2.)
It shouldn’t need saying, but I will say it anyway, I am an avid reader. Three authors vie for my top favorite and they are, in no certain order, Brandon Sanderson, R.A. Salvatore, and Robert Jordan. I’ve been reading since I could. I read the Lord of the Ring’s Trilogy in middle school. At least twice. And skipped “middle grade” and YA level altogether, though through The Hunger Games, The Divergent trilogy and a few notable others (The Lunar Chronicles which I have reviewed) I have found a love for YA.
I hate sparkly vampires and werewolves who aren’t werewolves. I love reading fan fiction, though I am EXTREMELY picky about the pairings and hate most cross overs. I can be quite random at times and often forgetful, but I really do try.

Enjoy and Keep Writing,
