I’m a writer.
How do I know? Well…I suppose I could tell you that stories have always danced in my imagination. I could explain that as a young girl I spent countless hours writing plays (none of which ever saw an audience) and filling the pages of diaries (all of which I should have saved). I could admit that I have passed immeasureable blocks of time daydreaming (something I still do every chance I get). I could even tell you that after earning a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from the University of Texas and then working for a few years as a retail manager, I realized I have characters talking to me, begging me to tell their tales.
Or I could tell you this…I write. Every single day. In between driving my youngest daughter to school and working part-time as a personal assistant (aka, grocery shopper). In between cooking dinner and folding laundry. Into the wee hours of the night.
- I’m into CrossFit, Bikram yoga, bicycling and cooking meals from scratch. My husband does the gardening and composting.
- I enjoy reading nonfiction books every bit as much as I love fiction novels. My favorite subjects are anthropology and quantum physics.
- If I’m not at home with my husband and two daughters, I’m probably at Starbucks, seated at the “big table” with my laptop, sipping a Grande Americano. I am a coffee addict!
