My name is Breiten. I live in St. Johns Arizona. I'm 14 and my hobbies include playing video games and chilling with my two dogs Ranger and Lady who are the sweetest dogs in the world. I live with my family of five and have two annoying siblings. I’m currently in Middle School and going into High School next year. I haven’t written any books so I’m not technically an author, but this is my author bio.

I just happened upon this. l love tid-bits of information and this was great. I have had experience with water intoxication. I had no idea I was drowning myself. This was from a medication side effect.
