I am a fantasy writer working to make my stories more available to others.
I have two teenage children, so you can imagine that finding time to work on writing can be difficult, especially since I also have a full time job at Intermountain Lock and Security Supply. However, I do try my hardest to ensure that I am able to keep this creative side of my life going.
My husband, Michael, and I met in 2013 (so, no, the children are not ours, but his; at this point they are mine, too, though). We live in Denver, and while he is from here and loves it, I think that I would very much prefer to leave the city.
I have been writing since I was a kid. I used to daydream a lot about these fantasy worlds that I created, and it was my mother’s idea for me to start writing them out. This was a great therapy, since it allowed me to get everything out of my head and enabled me to actually pay attention to the world around me.
I hadn’t planned on attempting to get published until the last few years. It took me some time to realize that I might actually have some skill, and longer to realize that I actually enjoy writing. It has taken me some time to reach this point, but now I am focused on making this little dream of mine become a big reality.
Michael has great skill as an artist, but little motivation (unfortunately). I have been trying to get him to draw more, but after a long day at work he would often prefer to relax with a good video game or movie with the kids. This is completely understandable, of course, but such a waste of talent!
I hope you enjoy everything that I have to share with you. I promise, I put a lot of myself in everything that I do here, so I doubt any of it would be very boring.
