First and foremost, being a firm believer that life is far too important to be taken seriously, I love to laugh. I'm a writer with a penchant for Speculative Fiction, likely caused by exposure to dangerous levels of the high-tech industry. When I try to write a mainstream story, something unexpected worms its way in and who am I to deny the muse? A wanderer by nature, I'm from wherever I'm writing today. I'm a wife and a mother and a writer and a storyteller. The kaleidoscope of human perspective fascinates and often amuses me. Salad and ice cream are what's for dinner if I'm cooking. The only thing I collect are stories, and I've been blessed with a face that apparently says, "Really? Tell me more!" Outside is my favorite place to be. Jogging to loud music makes me happy. Telling the truth is my moral code as a writer, and I believe joy is often a matter of perspective and priority.
