I live in the southwest part of the United States. I love to sit in front of a fireplace, take adventurous trips, and drink copious amounts of coffee supplemented with iced tea.
And read. Did I mention I love to read? Favorite genres are speculative fiction, fantasy, cozy mysteries, science fiction, and some romance. To my surprise, in college I took a course on Medieval Literature and absolutely loved it.
Currently I am without a pet, but when I get another, it will most likely be a cat. I love dogs too. I grew up with them. But I have found a special affinity to cats.
My Writing Journey
I have been writing most of my life. A short story here, a bit of poetry there. Not continually, but not for lack of desire. I stole moments between the things life throws at us.
Then one day I found an incredible group of smart and talented women to critique with. Some local and one long distance. They are still guiding me through the craft of writing with their wisdom and experience.
In 2019 I had an opportunity to enter a short story for consideration to be published in an anthology by a local writer’s group. And then it happened. My story was published. I wasn’t just a writer any more, I was an author.
