In looking at other blogs, I’ve come to realize that a short and sweet paragraph about who I am, while convenient leaves a lot out. As a result, I’m going to fill in the details.
Who am I?
I am a writer. That’s it in a nutshell. I write because I don’t know how not to. When I’m old, gray, and distinguished (say about 100+) I’ll be the one tottering around with a notebook, pen flashing furiously across the page. I write when I’m watching TV, I write on my breaks, I write during lunch. It’s who I am. If I was to stop, I’d be lost. I’m not published yet, but I’m working on it. The written word is intoxicating to me. It’s a fix that I’m always seeking, needing, and wanting. Without it, I’d wither away into nothingness.
What do I do?
I’m a working Mom. I have two adorable children who mean the world to me. Without them, life wouldn’t be as bright as it is. For work, I am a Web and Graphic Designer. I’ve been doing it for 9 years now and it’s still fresh to me in some respects, in others, not so much. Still I enjoy it and I suppose that is all that matters.
What do I write?
Everything…. Okay, I don’t write romance. I don’t have that in me. I write action pieces with a human element. Occasionally I write a piece that focuses more on the characters than the action, but something is always going on. I love science fiction, real world fiction, and fantasy. I have the most success writing real world fiction because I get bogged down in the details for fantasy and science fiction. My most common genre: Thriller and Suspense.
