Stephanie Allen is a sophomore from Yadkinville, NC. (It's not close to anything you've heard of.) She's been writing since before she can remember, but isn't majoring in English. She chooses to confuse her parents by picking Japanese instead. Stephanie wears wild socks, can't decide between pirates and ninjas and is in a serious, long-term relationship with the word skullduggery.
