A writer. A reader. A lover of words. The desire to write has been upon me since I can remember. As a child I would get together with my siblings and create impromptu plays. Or we would play imaginary adventures in our walnut tree or stranded old bus on our 30-acre homestead in Oregon. Novels didn't blossom until I was 16. A shy teen viewed as an outsider, I lived through my characters. There was so much depth of emotion to experience through them! Because of my adventures through my characters, my brain sees more facets of possibilities, and I'm more certain of my identity. I like who I am and enjoy the challenge in creating the perfect story for the characters sitting in the back stage of my imagination.
