Blah, blah, blah . . .
Here's the real scoop:
A story percolated in my head the summer of 2011, and I sat down to write it. I’ve been writing every day since (well, I try to), having unexpected fun in the process (most of the time). My degree is in television and video production with a certificate in film. I worked for PBS and FOX before becoming an accountant.
Yes. An accountant.
I had tried writing novels and screenplays in the past and never got far. It wasn't until I picked up a Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novel that I found my "voice." Everything clicked. To my amazement, I finished my first novel Deadly Dancing and had no idea what to do after that. So, I continued. There were many slips and trips along the way, and I'm still learning as I go. But, I ditched the accounting job, and now I get to stay at home with my son and write.
As for hobbies, I rather suck at most things and have no patience. I do love to travel, but that's an expensive hobby to keep. I've recently tried geocaching, but I found that some adventures are better left to novels. So, I write and hope you enjoy the read. If you get a few laughs from it, then I'm thrilled.
I currently live in Wisconsin with my husband and son . . . and Herbert, the cat (Gus and Herbert might just be the same cat. Just don't tell him.)
I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I've enjoyed writing them.
