Warning: If you're expecting me to write something serious here, you will be disappointed. I can't say I'm one of those writers who always KNEW they wanted to be a writer. Nor could I say I've been doing it all my life, though I did find some old notes I wrote my mom eons ago-I think I was five. My how time flies. Growing up, I wanted to be a lawyer and a psychologist-obviously I've seen the light, though to be honest, I've never settled down into any career until I started writing. I've worked fast food, as a receptionist, an office manager (in a daycare that gets me bonus points), delivered pizza, did a stint at Wally World as a cashier, and was a hairdresser for five years (oh the stories I could tell). And that's just the stuff I got paid to do! These days I file stuff, answer phones and tweak websites to put food on the table--this is important when you have a kid in college--and write in my spare time. I figure it was all training for the writing gig. That and all those Barbara Cartland romances I cut my teeth on. I don't drink beer (why would I when God gave us Vodka?) and I don't like football, but don't tell the Powers that Be or they might revoke my Texas Citizenship. And I say y'all but never y'all all, cause that's just wrong. Last but not least, I'm a storyteller and a writer, and I'm here to entertain you. *** Pets: Um four. I have no idea how this happened. Six if you count the kids. Books: WAY too many. I have no idea how this happened either. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. What do you read for fun: Pretty much anything! What would you be doing if you couldn't be a writer? Be a professional sleeper. You can get paid for that, right? Who is your favorite basketball team? Hmm if you ask my kids, it's UT (that's Longhorns not Tennessee), but truthfully I'm a longtime North Carolina fan.
