I am a writer of adventure stories (although this is not an official category my writing spans YA, NA, Speculative Fiction, and Romance) who taught high school English in a past life.
I am a freelance writers and editor who loves giving creative writing workshops and advising about the self-publishing landscape. I'll have 3 books published in my Chronicles of Xannia series as of April 2017, 3 non-fic industry publications, three short stories in two anthologies, and one essay on the believability factor in fiction writing in a guide to writing.
I am a mother and a wife with an OCD bent toward organization - but I hate cleaning and anything related to it, so I'm definitely not a housekeeper! ;)
I learned how to shoot an olympic bow when I was in high school and I look forward to taking it up again in the future.
I enjoy playing adventure games on my PSIII, X-Box 360, and Wii.
I have a quick mind and a good sense of humour but I am not a humourous person, though I try.
