Welcome to Scribbled Horizons!
My twin sister and I have been avid readers for most of our lives and enthusiastic writers for nearly just as long. Though we have read and loved many books from a variety of genres, being legally blind has given us a special appreciation for the fantastical as we have always had to fill in the gaps in our vision with our own imaginations. This passion has influenced much of our writing and other projects.
This site is both an archive of our works and, we hope, a place where readers, writers, and educators might find some helpful resources.

P.S. All the artwork on this website (except for the covers of books we review) was created by us.
