I’ve been a writer as long as I can remember, I just didn’t know it. As a kid I was constantly making up stories in my head. Sometimes I would write them down, mostly I wrote poetry. In my high school years I attempted some short stories and started writing what were supposed to be full length novels, but never finished them. As an adult of course I got distracted with trying to find my “real” career and stopped writing anything more significant than a journal entry, but my stories never left me.
In 2016, I decided to take my pen up again and make things happen. It's taken some time and I don't know that I'll ever get through my learning curve, but my stories are finally coming together, characters are coming alive, and so am I.
But Writing is of course just one facet of life. Others for me include dancing, historical costuming, and hanging with my “Little Mr.”, a very needy, but cuddly, maltipoo. I started out with historical romances since those are the most comfortable for me, but I have a whole backlog of ideas ranging from contemporary to paranormal to fantasy-esque. I guess time will tell what sticks and what doesn't.
I also love to travel, visiting new places near and far, and incorporate what I learn from those experiences into my writing.
