I am a writer and a mom. I also teach middle school. I have completed my first novel, The Gate, and have six "works in progress". That alone should give you an idea about who I am. I am constantly trying to find the time and waking hours to return to all the incredible places I have created and move my characters forward (actually, they do all the moving - I just record it!).
Time is a precious commodity. But I have stories to tell - really great stories in rich and interesting places, so I have rededicated my efforts and carved out daily writing time for myself.
I write so that someone can read one of my stories and be transported to the world in which it takes place. That is my ultimate goal - to share these amazing characters, stories, and worlds I love so much. Thank you for being willing to visit these places and allow the characters an opportunity to steal your heart like they have stolen mine.
