Hi, I’m glad you’re here.
I’m a gamer, a grandma, a wife, a business owner, a geek, a fan, a hero, a villain, a mom and a friend. I work in design and marketing to pay the bills. I started learning to play violin last year when I began my manuscript, in order to better write about music. My lovely daughter, as it happens, is a talented sculptor. My husband and son play guitar and I hope one day to get them to play with me.
I’ve been writing for 16 years. My work has appeared on numerous websites and blogs, and one essay collection, all nonfiction boring techie stuff. I’ve also been a public speaker. Now, I’m trying my hand at fiction. I started a few years ago and am furiously editing the first book. I have 4 books planned and 3 outlined.
Favorite authors: Lewis, Jordan, Tolkien, Rothfuss, Sullivan, Lawrence, Modissett, Pratchett, Adams, Eddings, Butcher and Williams. Susan Cooper, Madeleine L’Engle, Anne McCaffrey, Ursula LeGuin, Patricia Wrede, Lloyd Alexander, Guy Gavriel Kay I also quite enjoy the odd Dean R Koontz book. (Pun intended.) If you don’t know these names get to reading. I’ll wait.
No, I do not yet have an agent or publisher and no I am not hell-bent on indie publishing. I just own a marketing company, and am a designer. So it is sorta an easy step for me to take and I’m not afraid of it. I am seeking an agent and traditional publisher when I finish writing. One agent. I have one I want. If that doesn’t happen then I’ll go indie.
I live within spitting distance of Louisville, Kentucky. I drive a Mini that is affectionally known as the CARDIS (it’s bigger on the inside) and am an Anglican (ACNA), not an Episcopalian. Yes there is a difference. They let me teach the children every week and I am plotting to introduce the kids to Aslan and Tumnus asap.
