About me

Industry Arts
Location Metro Detroit, MI, United States
Introduction I wrote my first story in the second grade. It probably wasn't very good, but I was off to a good start! I studied English and Library Science in college (I have an Associates Degree in Library Science)... but before I really started working, I got married and started a family. My family now includes a teenaged daughter and three "four-footed children": two cats, and a spoiled rotten Mexican Hairless dog. I write because I have these ideas in my head, and they turn into stories. Once I have a story in my head, I have to write it down. Once it's written, it seems only natural to share it with others. My number one piece of advice to young writers is to write from your heart.
Interests Painting/Drawing, gardening, backyard astronomy, walking in the woods (or at least the park!), and spending quiet time with Mother Nature.
Favorite Movies The Subway, Pitch Black, Oscar, The Quiet Man, Kinky Boots, and Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead. Go ahead. I dare you to figure out what that means about me! ;-)
Favorite Music I listen to a little bit of everything, from Abney Park to Yazoo.
Favorite Books wayyyyyy too many to name... but my favorite series are the Black Jewels by Anne Bishop and the Jhergh books by Steven Brust. My favorite romance novel is Special Delivery by Heidi Cullinan.
