I am a writer of speculative fiction and all-around lover of story, no matter what form it might take or media it might use. My first professional sale was the story “Ghosts” to the Hadley Rille Books anthology Footprints. I’m currently working on several writing projects ranging from novels, short stories and graphic novels. I teach adult ESL, work in an elementary school library and serve on the Friends board for our local library. I’m also pretty active–I run, do yoga, play tennis, mountain bike, kayak, hike, pretty much anything active and outdoors, but only for fun and recreational competitions. I love to learn, and almost any topic aside from politics and religion fascinates me, so expect a wide variety of posts. I live in Texas with my husband, two wonderful daughters, two finches, parakeet, dog and bearded dragon.
