About Christina Schmidt

Welcome to ArmedWithCoffee.com, a blog meant to air the thoughts (random and intended) of a writer dedicated to becoming an author. I will relate my experiences thus far and with stark honesty; the good, the bad, and the ugly. The triumphs, the screw-ups, and the face-palms.

Somewhere a coffee maker just dinged, indicating a fresh brew. Let’s grab a cup.
