Welcome to Pen2Paper! I'm Zoe, the writer of this blog. I'm also a reader, author, and child of God. There's something here for everyone: writing, books, recipes, and lifestyle.

I fell in love with writing, reading, and great food when I was little. I started this blog to share my passions and connect with others.

I share recipes, book lists, writing tips, lifestyle posts, and more. I post on Wednesdays and Saturdays, so be sure to subscribe so you never miss a post!

Big Reader

My love of reading started with my mom. When my sister and I were just teeny little things, she would sit us in laundry baskets for 'boat time,' aka reading time. She would let ask pick books and set a timer for us to read. I was hooked from the start!

I've always been a big reader. I have lots of memories of pushing a plastic shopping cart around our public library, filling it up with books.

While this website has certainly evolved, it started out as just a book blog. I still share book reviews and lists of books for every type of writer. You can view more of my book posts below.

Writer Too

I think it would be hard for me to NOT to something with words because of how much I loved reading!

I like to think that writing has always been in my blood...I used to type up newspapers called 'The Daily News' on my typewriter and charge my family members for monthly copies!

I'm now a creative writer and plenty of space on this site is geared towards helping authors write well. I also interview a different author monthly, who gives tips on writing, publishing, and life.

Let's Eat!

I've always had a big sweet tooth. But I also like healthy (but still delicious!) recipes, dishes from all over the world, comfort food...you name it.

A lot of my recipes aim for simplicity. For example, a mug cake instead of a cake you have to take great pains frosting. But I also believe that taking time to cook and make meals for those you love is really special, which is why you'll find a wide variety of both recipe types and the time it takes them on my website.

Even More

Recently I launched the lifestyle section of this blog. There's fun lists, like Everything I Learned From Gilmore Girls, blog tips, discipleship, and more.

So That's It!
