Hello, and welcome to my blog.
Since you clicked on the About page, I’m going to give you what you want, a little more about me.
I was born in Texas but raised elsewhere – Idaho, California, Oklahoma – and now I’m back in Texas. This time with a husband and 3 short people who call me mom.
I’ve always had an interest in the quirky and mysterious. In college I wrote a screenplay about a conjoined twin who commits a murder and the resulting campy drama of having to imprison both sisters for the crime. I’ve moved on from such high-brow topics but still love exploring things that stir my curiosity.
I’ve always preferred language and fictional words over numbers and equations. But I needed to make money too, so I majored in Journalism. Getting to paid to write (albeit factual things) was a good gig and gave me lots of experience in having red lines slashed through my words with suggestions on how to improve things. I’m a firm believer that everybody benefits from an editor.
Some of my favorite books are Jane Eyre, House of the Scorpion, The Hunger Games, The Boys in the Boat, The Midwife’s Apprentice, Persuasion, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Gypsies, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Bible.
